Sainte-Enimie

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.

Our last stop on the second day of our French road trip over our Semana Santa break from school was in the village of Sainte-Enimie.  We approached the town from above as we came through the Gorges du Tarn and got excited to get out and stretch our legs a bit.  After parking and walking along the main drag and over the bridge, we figured we'd about seen it all - and it was lovely, so it's not like we were about to leave disappointed! - but thankfully I followed Danny behind the first row of restaurants and shops and a few turns later we were in the old quarter of town.
