Thomas, a visit sounds very tempting. I will let you know if I will actually have a chance to tour Albi...

In La Rochelle, I will probably give Les Flots a try on the second night; I am thinking thatR. Coutanceau might be too expensive this trip but I will definitely check their menu when we arrive. My friend asked her contacts at Martell..since they are in the Cognac business and live nearby, I am hoping that they have a good lead in Bar Andre. Here is the website with the carte; there are photos of some of the dishes.

There does not seem to be ONE thing on this menu for my vegetarian traveling companion. But I am sure she will convince them to rustle up something!

Here is another question:

If we visit Cordes, would you recommend lunch at Restaurant Tonin Ty, one of three places run by Yves Thuries? Or is this town way to overrun by tourists to even consider having lunch here..?? Or is the town so mobbed that I should skip a visit...

I looked into Roquefort and see that it is about 30 minutes from Millau..which makes them both about two hours from Montasies by the Michelin "discovery" route.

When in Cordes a few years ago we had lunch at the Grand Ecuyer Hotel. It was very nice. We had just missed the last transportation "up" and were told that it was an easy hike by a British couple who had just come down...It was not that easy..I remember that we kept thinking that the next turn would be the top!!

We also happened upon Roquefort on French Mother's Day and had a delightful lunch at a nice restaurant.

We stopped in Cordes for lunch at the top of the main road at the Auberge de La Bride. We sat under spreading Chestnut trees at communal tables and had a lunch that was good though I don't remember because it was several years ago but it was the party atmosphere that w enjoyed. Sloane Rangers and their nannies on one side, a French truck driver and wife on the other and so many foreign tongues heard.
