Sep 7, 2015 - Small Cathedral, Lavender & Big Gorge

We were up and had breakfast this morning then went ashore and split into a number of groups to walk with guides up the hill in Vivier to the Cathedral. Vivier is a small town with about 20% of the houses for sale. It is a dying town where people only come to buy a cheap house and commute elsewhere. It is not helped by the many building restrictions on developing the homes which is counterproductive as, after being denied renovation permits, they sit empty, decay and eventually fall apart. We reached the Cathedral, apparently the smallest...

Aug 24, 2013 - Tournon to Viviers 24 Aug 13

Well, I made a mistake in my last Journal entry; we arrived Tournon during the night, but not via Vienne and Viviers.

Viviers is an ancient village on the edge of the Rhone River. Here we took a walking tour and visited the Catherdral where we were treated to an organ concert.

There are street markings that mark the old Roman Road.

Jul 12, 2011 - Viviers

Etwas nach 10 Uhr sind wir auf ein kleines charmantes Hotel gestossen und haben dort ein wunderbares Frühstück erhalten. So gut hat ein Frühstück schon lange nicht mehr geschmeckt. Einfach lecker! Weiter ging es nach Viviers, wo wir nach dem Mittag angekommen sind. Wir haben ein wunderschönes Zimmer direkt vor dem Pool. So war zuerst baden und erholen angesagt. Dann ging es weiter zur Dorfbesichtigung. Viviers ist wahrlich...
