Whilst staying in Sorède recently, we visited the lovely grounds of Château de Valmy in Argelès-sur-Mer.
There were some beautiful views towards the mediterranean sea from the front of the château and the grounds had so many promising places to explore.
Where do these stairs lead to? I didn’t get the chance to find out as we had to move towards the falconry display that was starting imminently.
There were some very beautiful birds on display. Unfortunately I accidentally deleted many of my photos from the event (which was a shame as there was a fantastic Egyptian vulture, who really was my favourite of all the birds there!)
There were still some different vultures to come though…
Having a very large vulture hop less than a few feet from you is rather disconcerting – even more so when this is towards your two year old daughter (who was far smaller!) I think health and safety might have a slight melt down if this happened here!
There was also a small farmyard. Nin particularly like the donkeys:
And we also took some time to play in the little woodland park there:
All in all it made for a very pleasant few hours – although I would still like to know what’s up those stairs!
