Two weeks the Hérault, Cantal/Lozère/Aveyron, and northern Gard/Ardèche -- report

Jake Dear | Oct 13, 201204:51 PM     33

Thanks to everyone — including and especially mangeur, Ptipois, Parigi, johanabanana — for the recommendations leading to two great weeks (mid Sept) in (1) the Hérault; (2) the intersection of the Cantal/Lozère/Aveyron; (3) northern Gard and much of the Ardèche. I’ll mention in separate posts within this thread most of our dining stops, and I’ll try to augment many of them with a few photos (taken furtively by iphone, often as my wife rolled her eyes).

We really loved these areas for the people we met, the fine driving roads and walking paths, beautiful vistas and villages — and very often fine foods, including châtaigne in many forms.

In line with recent requests/comments, I’ll usually give our dining price totals. (Note: Most lunches included an aperitif, a demi or pichet of local wine, a local bottled gazeuse water, and one or “deux express”; dinners almost always included the same, but with a full bottle of wine and only one express.) — Jake
