Les Moutiers-en-Retz to Tours

Today we left the Atlantic coast and drove almost three hours east to the town of Tours. Our Chambre d’Hotes reservation said we could check in at 5pm. We are staying at La Héraudière.

It took about 3 hours to get to Tours. We drove to the town center, parked and walked. First we went to the tourist office and got a map.

Tours is a really pretty town.

We drove to La Héraudière and parked on the street to wait until we could check in. About 4:30 the host came out, knocked on the window and invited us in. He recommended we eat at a restaurant in the town center called Leonard de Vinci. It was a lovely and very good meal.
