Azay-le-Rideau : mais, le Château était fermé
The drive to our next destination was only 50 kilometres, but too much agreeable time had slipped by.
Parking the silver car, we found Azay-le-Rideau to be such a really pretty little town. We dashed towards the Château.
Sadly we had arrived too late.
Tout était fermé !
Not to be disheartened we walked the gorgeous streets admiring all we saw.
We entered Rue Balzac and gazed like kids in a big city, at all the little boutiques and their windows.
The neat and tidy pride in this village was so evident.
The wafting odour of the evening fare was drifting surreptitiously yet beckoningly from cute little restaurants dotted around the rue.
One didn't need to make a selection; one just followed one's nose; and follow - we did.
Patrick and Hugo at la Crédence were wonderfully welcoming.
We chattered like twopenny books about how bad Gavin's French was, and how good mine was.
Or was it the other way around !!!
No matter, we again felt totally indulged by our gracious hosts and spent hours laughing and eating, and drinking and laughing.
We all promised to return one day, and that's a promise that we will all look forward to honouring.
Pour les meilleurs Entrées, Plats du Jour, Soupes, Salades, Tartes et Patisseries, vous aimerez ce restaurant.
La Crédence est ouverte du mercredi au dimanche midi, sur réservation de préférence.
Ouvert tous les jours en Juillet et en Aôut, de 11h à 21h.
15 et 17 rue Balzac, 37190, Azay-le-Rideau. Téléphone 02 47 73 80 33.
Merci Patrick et Hugo, - À bientôt !
