Any answer to my last question? Is it a bad idea to visit Rocamadour on a Sunday?

No problem with a Sunday in May - as long as you are not going on one of the holiday weekends in May - 1 May, 8 May, when there will be lots of people everywhere. Both occur on Sunday, which means busy holiday weekends. But everywhere will be busy, Rocamadour no worse than anywhere else.

Steve; You could consider this chateau, just outside of St. Emilion. If you like being treated like family, this is a great place to stay. The French breakfast was very nice in an elegant setting. Room were lovely. www.closbertinat.com P.S. Forgive the double post. Computer problem

May 8 is the Fête de la Victoire 1945, or WWII Victory Day.

C'est a dire - VE Day - Victory Europe. Not quite the end of WWII, but pretty important in Europe.

I guess that in Bordeaux, wine is more important than VE day. On the weekend of the 8th, there is a big grand cru wine event in Bordeaux city.
