Visiting country-side around Montpellier

A cloudy day with passing showers. After a slow start to the morning Bea and I headed off on a trip that took us through the country-side around Montpellier. The first village we visited was St Martin de Londres. First stop was the boulangerie to buy some lunch snacks to nibble on while we wandered up and down the tiny little streets between the houses ending up at the church at the top.

Next village was St Jean de Bueges. We climbed up the hill to check out the Chateau, but sadly got caught in a downpour so didn't hang around. Scampered down the the wine tasting shop only to discover that it had shut an hour earlier! So just a photo of the vines, which are not yet coming to life after winter.

The final village visited for the day was St Guillem. A village that borders a small stream with a single road winding from the bottom of the valley to the top. On arriving we immediately took shelter in the shops from the showers. Some amazing displays of sweets and local produce in the first shop. We then decided to stop for crepes...I had a glass of wine with mine much to the amusement of our waitress! Once the shower cleared we wandered up and down the road.

Home quite late, champagne before dinner, red wine with dinner...all good!
