Another thing I didn't know was what to call these amazing roofs.
|Meursault town hall|
This is called Gothic architecture with Flemish roof tiles. They were spectacular.
|This is the Hospices de Beaune, more of which later|
The walk from the campsite into the village was quite pleasant. I've already shown you many of the grand houses.
|A chevreuil is a 'roe-deer', just as pictured|
|Notice the lovely tromp l'oeil?|
I've no doubt wine is the major industry in the area, but I had the feeling that tourism might be a close second.
Meursault looked a very pleasant place to live.
Every French person we met - young,old or in-between- was very polite and cordial. It was a great place to be ending up our holiday...but we're not quite done!
