We are delighted that you continue to enjoy coming here, and making the most of all the outdoor opportunities the area has to offer - the excellent riding in particular. Congratulations to your husband for his walk on the “Freedom Trail”; a very difficult and hazardous walk today, even with modern equipment, as it was during the war. We look forward to your next visit, and may perhaps suggest a visit to the Museum of “Le Chemin de la Liberté”- an excellent exhibition and fitting memorial to the courage of all “Passeurs”.
