Day 6 was spent around Lacave - a trip down the cave - steps and reflections here too! Gentle lunch in the village. The Hotel du Pont de l'Ouysse - where we stayed - has a Michelin star, and a wine list with prices to match, I spotted a St Emilion for 1500€ we stayed a lot further down the price range. The food was wonderful and there was the theatre of pouring hot chocolate sauce over a chocolate ball and watching its contents being revealed. You can't quite see the hotel in this picture it's at the foot of the cliff - the castle, on top, is owned by 3 retired schoolteachers - apparently they were offered a lot of money by a Hollywood star for the place but they wanted to keep their piece of heaven! We spent the afternoon lazing outside the hotel in their comfy chairs by the Ouysse. We met a couple also with Inntravel there they were on a cycling tour and on their last day, we had a few more days walking before Rocamadour.
