I went walking in Les Grouêts today and found this B&B, guarded by a lion (and a dog!).

Je me suis promené aux Grouëts aujourd’hui et j’ai trouvé cette chambre d’hôte surveillée par un lion (et un chien !)

    It looks a beautiful day for walking. We did 17k’s yesterday, starting at 7am and the sweat was just running off us.

    Clever you spotting the dog and lion. The grounds of the B&B must be beautiful in spring.

      17 K – that’s not bad! I guess we can be expecting heat when we get to Australia on 14th February!

      Yes, the grounds must be lovely and they also have a beautiful view I imagine.

        The temperatures are up and down. It was 37c the day before and 32c by the time we quit.
        Sydney seems to have a had a summer of bad storms.

    We are just starting the search for a gite that will not only take our dog but has a fenced garden which will contain our dog who’s middle name is Houdini.

    Well, if you have a dog called Houdini you obviously have to stay in Blois! I assume you know why. There was a plaque in the street we used to live in in Paris about Houdin. The B&B has a website. You could ask about dogs!

    No, I did not know the Robert Houdin connection to Blois – and thence to Harry Houdini and our dog Ted.
    I am so better informed now thank you. The B&B’s lovely gite is a bit rich pricewise for us though. I shall start looking in the area.

      You should try airbnb. My son stayed in a little flat in the main part of town at Christmas that wasn’t expensive and seemed good. I don’t know if you could have Houdini with you though. There is a little terrace at the back.
