On my first night of this visit to France I wanted to make a bit of a pilgrimage in honor of my late parents to the place where Mr. Hulot's Holiday was filmed as that was their favorite. The weather in Paris was fantastic but as I got further west the clouds were getting dark and it began to rain. Just at i arrived in the town of St. Nazaire my GPS went dead and I since I had GPS this trip I left my Michelin map at home. It was dark, rainy, and I was lost. I phoned a friend and she looked it up online and did her best to guide me in. Strangely, the roads in St. Nazaire are not parked as well as most other regions in France and it was quite difficult finding the place. When I did arrive the hotel was immaculate, the rooms were modern and clean, and the restaurant downstairs was going full-tilt. Lots of fantastic seafood in an Italian style preparation was being served. The lobby staff was really great and breakfast the next morning was pretty complete.
