David and I got a lift from Villeneuve to Sainte Foy La Grande. There's no rural bus service around this part of France (in fact, so far as I can discover there's no rural bus services anywhere in France) so we had to get a lift. At the station we were greeted by complimentary coffee and croissants. No one seemed to know why but no one would ask the people providing the coffee. Everyone just went round asking everyone else. It was quite amusing really.
We had a while to wait but it was a clear cold autumn morning and it was pleasant soaking up the last of the town. It seemed a shame to be leaving it.
The local train joins Bordeaux and Sarlat with the towns in between: a journey of about 2 hours.
