12 Sep 11: Auvillar to Miradoux

Route: Auvillar to Miradoux  17.3 km

Weather warmed to 90s after last night. Another hilltown midday and a second one for the night.

Lodging: CH Le Bonheur. I arrived at the gite earlier than their intended 3 pm opening – Madame had been turning guests away as they were not ready to receive. I asked if I could just get out of the heat, and she allowed me to rest on the shady terrace (with a panoramic view of the Gers). Huge old townhouse, beautifully renovated, original wood floors. Guests include a German couple from near Bonn, a French couple from Strasbourg, and another French couple. Hosts are Dutch.

Cuisine: Dinner was a chevre crouton and salad, a lovely tagine with quinoa, and a fresh fig tart for dessert.
