We made our way up past the castle and toward the main entrance: a gate at the end of a large park. It was shut and locked. We couldn't even see the castle from there. So, we made our way back down the hill to the Verteuil's market square thinking we'd console ourselves with a coffee or a glass of wine.

The château de Verteuil rises above the town's market square.

The main café on the square was closed and wouldn't open until 18h00. Another café was setting up, but the guy said they wouldn't start serving for about twenty minutes. We decided to bag it and head back toward the car. As we left the market square, the views of the castle got a little better.


  1. I thought you were going to say, "Drat, we'll just have to go back to the gite and have our coffee/wine there!"

  2. mitch, there were so many mishaps on this little trip. I haven't even got to the big one, yet.

    mary, well, that's exactly what we did.


Tell me what you think!
