About 20 mins away from the campsite is the town of Thouars, considered the gem of the Deux-Sèvres. I really have to say that I was a wee bit disappointed in the city as I found it all rather haphazard. Bloody hilarious, isn’t it? Me calling a town with evidence of habitation going back 5000 yrs and the town developing in the 8th century “haphazard”!!! To be fair there is such a lot of work going on in virtually every street and alley and it felt more like negotiating a massive building site. Added to that, it was 30c and walking around wearing a mask doesn’t make fun sight-seeing. However, there are some lovely buildings and along the River Thouet it was very pleasant.
Le château des ducs de La Trémoille (17th century)
River Thouet (tributary of the River Loire)
Off for a drink and a treat now.
Hummmmm….which one should I get?
Perhaps one of each? I’m sure that Weight Watchers wouldn’t approve Haahaaa!
