We were a little lazy this morning wo we didn't get the ealier start we had hoped for. For some reason, neither one of us have spept all that well for a few days so we didn't get all-over ourselves for not getting up. Turning "Bumble Bee" back around we headed up to Montreuil-Bellay and then from there we were to head due south to Niort and then Cognac. In Montreuil-Bellay, we planned to make a stop to see our last chateaux in the Loir Valley. The Village of Montreuil-Bellay is very small, and the chateaux that sits above the river, is quite large. The Du Chateau de Montreuil-Bellay is privately owned. The owners use tha castle at least once a month for their personal use, but other times they have most of it open to the public. We enjoyed the tour, although it was only in French (we had our own cheet sheet). It was in the decor of its time and even though, there were personal pictures arouhd that made it more personal (even for us). We saw things like the "sweating room" (kind of like an early version of a sauna) a huge kitchen, drawing room, "Her" bedroom, music room, the fortified "ramparts" and fth formal gardens. The furniture was from the 17th centure and looked like new. After a bit to eat, we headed off to Cognac. We decided to make our first stop in Cognac at Hennessy, "le Coeur du Cognac". Did we make the right decision??? Oh Ya... I'l just let you know that we had a sample...and then...we as we arrived at the campground...they were there having a "Tasting"...Life is Good !!!!
