Sunrise at Rieux – photo by Nick Fletcher

About a further 2Nm upstream, one reaches a series of pontoons on the north bank close to a village called Rieux. On our last visit there in 2019, we found there were no electrics or water points on the pontoon but, having encountered this situation elsewhere, we managed by joining multiple hosepipes and electrical cables together! The village is about a 15-minute walk with most essential needs and near the pontoons there is a Creperie/Brasserie but seems never open when we are hungry!
