Life and travel in France, 3 years & counting

Where should I go next?…

Saint Guilhem le Désert: Medieval village

Screen shot 2014-04-18 at 4.55.08 PM

So far, I have introduced 3 “le plus beaux villages” in the south, and le Désert is the 4th and last one I have visited (at least for the moment).

Saint Guilhem le Désert

The one thing that brought me there was the abbey.

The village was very small (but pretty) and we made a tour within half an hour. Still it is worth a visit if you are nearby. A picture is worth a thousand words, so I pick out some pictures to show you the village…

Saint Guilhem le Désert.4Normally we would avoid dining out even when we travel around (I rather save the money for more travel!). This time we made an exception for this crêperie for the sake of Dada. Unlike his hometown Brittany, it isn’t easy to find a crêperie in the South. So if you want to try a realcrêpe but you are not going anywhere near the North (Brittany is more on the west in fact) France, this one may do the track.


For me, I tried a typical Breton desert “far”…

On our way back, we passed through Pont du Diable (Devil’s bridge), a world heritage site where for almost 1000 years it is standing across the river.

(Note: The Devil’s bridge is the one where I stood and took this picture and thus not visible here)

Bon voyage à tous 🙂
