My girlfriend and I were travelling around Europe for 2 months so to help manage our expenses we decided to go to the restaurant but stay at the campsite by the river.
I was relying upon the gps to get us to the correct place, but unfortunately i didn't realise that there are 2 Belcastels in France that are approximately 2 hours apart. My girlfriend was getting a little testy as we drove from the incorrect Belcastel to the correct Belcastel but she became silent when she saw the little village by the river.
We put up our tent, got showered and then went to the restaurant.
The food at the restaurant was amazing with the staff very focused on providing a very high level of service. All the courses were very good, the cheese cart gave us the opportunity to try some local cheeses that we found quite difficult to find elsewhere in France. We had earlier been to a 3 Michelin star restaurant in Paris and the overall experience at Restaurant du Vieux Pont was just as good.
It was a quite unique experience, walking from the restaurant back to the campsite over the beautiful bridge in the middle of the village.
This was one of the highlights on our 2 month European holiday.
