The midi pyrenees region first fewd days

We start our week in the midi-pyrenees region from the 19th September. Our gite is right in the centre of a village called Catus about 15kms to Cahors amd many other villages of note. I can walk just 2mins and I am at the boulangerie for breads and cakes and the boucherie for meats and charcouterie products. Our gite is right on a river with a small bridge. The main house is of large proportions and built out of stone. We have enjoyed visits to Cahors town and markets and the markets at Praysac.

Provence the last few days

While in Provence we have visited Arles where Vangogh lived and worked as well as Roman ampitheatres and more.. We visited the Pont du Gard an ancient Roman system for transporting water and the sights of avignon as well as the city of Aix-en-Provence. Seeing so much ancient history is mind boggling we have been really awe struck.
