We discovered La Couvertoirade on our return to Carcassonne from the Millau Bridge. A well preserved pretty medieval village with the odd content cat lying around, that is, until a cloudburst sent rivers of rain down the narrow streets; we saw a tortoiseshell puss man...More

This village is very beautiful ,well preserved as medieval age village. But there was no restaurant for breakfast for us. まるで中世にタイムスリップしたような町でした。 全てが昔のままでとても美しい景観でした。 ただ、朝食を取ろうと思ったけれど、それらしいお店がなく、あきらめました。

Nice drive, atmospheric. Windy and cold and ridiculously expensive. Do not buy a sheepskin there. Come to Scotland.
