Flowing into the Atlantic and the largest estuary in western Europe, it includes an archipelago of nine islands and is subject to very strong tides. We had to go for a visit to evaluate it as an area to live in.
After house-hunting, we drove into Blaye and enjoyed walking through the Citadelle de Blaye, which was originally a medieval walled city that became a citadel in the 17th century and was a military outpost. Interestingly, the civilian population retreated to areas outside the walls.
Had an AMAZING lunch inside the walled city. You know I don’t usually photograph food, but this appetizer was so beautiful and delicious and French, I couldn’t stand it!
