Had our breakfast, as usual, around the corner in the square near the mayor's office. Packed up our belongings and noticed our power had been cut off. Very strange. It was after 10.30, yet Mario said he had been told we could check out at 12.00. On arrival at reception they tried to add an extra charge of 60€ per night for the children. I murmured to Mario that that wasn't what Expedia, our booking agent, had confirmed and voila - the hotel staff member changed the bill to take off the charge. Very odd a top hotel would be doing those things. Anyhow, an easy 1hr drive to Salon de Provence. Predictably we did find it hard to get to the carpark the hotel had organised, even though we had a map. Thank goodness for the GPS, even if it did go nuts at one stage. Stairs up to the second floor to our room. Loved the hotel. Dated, with old furniture but really homey, great location in the centre of town and a very welcoming receptionist/owner. A good start. A walk through the lovely old town. All the museums were open for free today. Saw one that was not much chop - dummies dressed up as some sort of historical figures. Got out of there fast. Next museum was brilliant. A sort of military museum with original weapons and uniforms throughout the ages. Great rooms devoted to Napoleon, including his bread. Really good stuff. Walked past the house where Nostradamus lived and wrote his famous Quaintrains (check spelling). Had a look into a lovely little church which had the best atmosphere. There was a mass taking place and lots of singing happening. Dinner at a place recommended by the hotel. Ok, but nothing special (a chop on a plate with chips).
