I stayed only one night in the historic spa town of Vichy whilst in France. Known for its mineral waters and thermal baths whose patrons included Latetia Bonaparte (mother of Napoloeon), it has a long history which extends to this day. I am also aware that Vichy’s Mayor is Claude Malhuret. (Together with Bernard Kouchner, they are the co-founders of the organization Médecins Sans Frontières or Doctors Without Borders)
Being such a short stay, I did not have the opportunity to test it out. I barely had time to walk around town before it got too dark to go anywhere else. But nevertheless, I was rewarded with a gorgeous sunset. Perhaps this memory is enough to bring me back next time. Here are some photos From Vichy. If you are ever in the vicinity, do drop in as this town has definitely more to it than meets the eye!
