Left Sarlat today. Sorry to leave there really as it is a very nice site and a nice area. We set off towards the Mediterranean not knowing how far we would get but as it happened we got to the coast between Montpelier and Marseille. Just a little inland near to Arles in the Camargue. We found a decent enough municipal site at a place called Fontvieille just for the night. We left Sarlat at around 9am and arrived 6pm, having driven 260 miles. It was slow going for the first 100 miles across country and mostly secondary roads but once we got to the Autoroute and the ‘N’ roads it was better.

Nothing much else to report today. We saw some stunning scenery once we got further south. Especially a stunning viaduct at Millau on the pay section of the A25 but we saw probably a better view of it from the ‘ordinary’ road approaching it. After a long and winding climb out of Millau we reached a plateau about 800metres high then we joined the free bit of the A25 and an awesome descent on the A25, passed through a couple of tunnels as well. A great feat of engineering I would say.

We hit Montpelier at work finishing time I think so the traffic through there was bad. We are not used to queuing in traffic any more it seems. Sally Sat Nav kept us on track though so need to be watching traffic and looking for road signs. It would have been a nightmare. But we were soon on the open road again and a good run through to Arles.

Tomorrow we are setting off for a site at Roquebrune sur Argens back inland from Frejus and Cannes but only a few kilometres so beaches and towns will be accessible.
