It's a "renowned beauty spot," according to McNight and there are lots of holiday cabins and tourist facilities about. We found just enough space on the pontoon in front of the restaurant to tie up and went up to make our reservation. We then took a couple of hour bike ride to Bain les Bain. In Roman times it was known for it's hot waters and it was very fashionable in the 19 century. Emphasis on was. Maybe because we were there on Saturday afternoon and everything (I mean everything!) was closed but we were unimpressed. The gardens were beautiful but it looked like the town had seen better, more prosperous days.
The dinner turned out to be Italian; pizza, pasta and Italian wines on the menu, and it was very good (and very inexpensive).
Sunday it was off to another beautiful village, Fontenoy le Chateau.
