OK, so ‘the next day’ turned out to be ‘next Saturday.’ I said in Part Une of this entry that I would write the follow-up the following day. What can I say? I tried but, um, stuff happens.
The first stop was the charming, privately-owned Chateau de Bazian:
Then it was off to the town of Preignan, just a few klicks north of Auch, the capital of the Gers. After a stop at a vide grenier – a community-wide yard sale – to get directions (who says a man won’t stop and ask for directions?), we found our way to Chateau de la Testere.
This was a place where the further away you were, the better it looked. From the highway, it looked swell. Up close, not so much.
And that was all the time we had.
