My plan for today was to tour the villages along the Aveyron river. I began with St Antonin Noble Val. What a great name. Came from the Latin, Nobilis Vallis. And it is a beautiful valley.

The narrow medieval streets were still a bit chilly. So, despite the sweet cat

I decided to drive on. The next one was okay but didn’t call me to linger.

The third, Bruniquel, was my choice. It’s a tiny place running down the hill from its chateau. Right out of the parking place I found classic cars and a good bakery.

Up the hill there is no traffic and few people.

The chateau is quirky with a great view.

Truly a noble valley. After the French version of a bacon cheeseburger with fries, really good, outside with this view

I felt completely satisfied and came wandering home.
