Bouzies

the perfect south of france road trip

the perfect south of france road trip

Exactly a year ago, we were in the middle of an 11-day road trip around the South of France.  It was an absolutely massive undertaking to plan, inspired by cheap flights from Madrid to Toulouse and Lonely Planet's France's Best Trips book.  I pieced together many of the different road trip itineraries in the book and added in some additional stops based on blogs and sites I'd read online.  The final plan was very ambitious and had us covering quite a bit of southern France, but the end result was...fabulous (if I do say so myself).  Now, when I think about going anywhere in Europe on vacation, a few places come to mind, and the South of France is without a doubt at the top of that list.

The little town of Bouzies (population ~80) wasn't much more than a drive-by for us.  It was on my list, but, as you may be noticing as a theme already, due to time constraints (I waaaay overplanned this trip), we had to keep driving in order to see the four other places on the docket for the day and avoid arriving at our Airbnb at midnight.  So, we took a few pictures out of the car window, drove across the town's suspension bridge slowly, and went a tiny bit out of our way to drive through some tunnels of rock as we were leaving town.
