After a long rest following my odyssey the night before (being lost for 5 hours) I was refreshed and ready to move onto the next leg of my trip.  I still had a 4 hour drive ahead of me, so a pit stop was inevitable.

I’d read about a chateau in a place called Villenueve-Lebrom.  It had a moat and I’d never seen a moat in-person, so off I went in search of the chateau.  I did find it at the top of a hill just south of Clermont-Ferrand.  It wasn’t easy to find.  At one point my GPS announced “I am not able to guide you from this route.”

Seeing the chateau and the little old village that surrounds it was worth the trip.
