It is Easter Sunday, the plan is, Kathleen will attend church at 10:30 in Nefiach, I will wait for her, and we will leave at about 12:00.
The Priest is late in arriving (an hour late!), slept in again?
So, the plan almost works, we just leave a bit late!
3Euro per each time you leave (there is a barrier on exit, which costs 3Euro to open it), no facilities except toilet.
The village in an amazing state of preservation!, and is open to wander around freely.
when you leave, if you are heading North, do not follow the signs to A75, for some reason known only to the French it takes you on a cross country route for about five or six miles, to rejoin A75 South of where you left it, with a massive hill to climb! Just go back the way you came, to the A75 services at the top of the hill!
Monday. Faverolles, Auvergne (N44 56.339’ E3 8.858’).
The Aire is located next to what used to be the Neris Les Bains, railway station.
What a magnificent building it is. But sadly, it had a very short life as a railway station. It was build 1929-1931, then enjoyed a short period of use, before the outbreak of WW2. Services were suspended until the end of WW2, and, when they restarted in 1946, they never achieved profitabilty, with the result, the French version of Dr Beeching closed the line for passenger traffic in 1957. The station is now a exhibition centre etc (I suspect that means an under used liability for the local council).
Wednesday. An Aire, just south west of Orleans, in a village called Dry (N47 47.896’ E1 42.857’). The aire has the usual services.
