A10 Exit 27 doggiestop and picnic place, France



With a picnic, some sunshine and an active imagination this is a great place to visit.  It doesn't really matter whether the site of the ruins is officially open or not because you can see everything from a handy hillock on the footpath (and save yourself the entry fee).

The ruins are what's left of a town called Vetus Pictavis, where Gauls, Romans and before them Celts enjoyed life. It's a fabulous location, now almost completely deserted except for the many butterflies feasting on the nectar of wild flowers. It's so quiet you can hear the soft flapping of the butterfly wings.

Great off lead walk

Brilliant, as described. Path is flanked by wheat fields, sunflower fields and vineyards (i.e. no livestock, if that’s a concern). Easy to find and very pretty scenery.
