We had visited this place some years ago by car, whilst having overnighted at the lovely boutique hotel and restaurant (a moment’s walk away), owned by chef Alain Ducasse (pre-planned and booked by Michael).
This time, we had our own on board accommodation, and restaurant facilities!!!! – perhaps not quite up to the standard of Mons. Ducasse!
We arrived at the end of the day and parked up at the (out of season) free aire, had our evening bite to eat and turned in for the night. It was well populated in the aire, but as motorhomers tend to be, (for the most part!) all were considerate and quiet.
The next day, and not having spoken to an English voiced person since we arrived in France, I just had to say ‘hello’ to a couple in a British reg van. We had a lovely time of talking and left them our address card with blog details in case it was of interest to them to keep in touch. After quite some time of enjoying Nigel and Kim’s company, we said our goodbyes and they headed off having completed their visit to Moustiers. Nice people!
We crossed the road from the aire and started ambling, then trudging, up the steep road! Short and sharp! There was a lot more to Moustiers than we remembered which was a pleasant surprise! This visit however, I knew I would not be repeating a climb up to the little chapel on the high rock!
Enjoyed an explore of the town, then headed back to the van, and set out to drive one side of the Gorges du Verdon, via Lac de Ste Croix.
