On the terrace of the abbey of Charlemagne at Brantome on the river Dronne in the Perigord region of France, which is today a popular tourist spot.
It is an attractive little town with a very picturesque weir and mill which now serves more profitably, no doubt as a well appointed hotel.
Literary commentators have sung the praises of Brantome, but Sir William obviously had an unfortunate experience there because he refers to it in his diaries
as 'the worst town in France'.
It couldn't have been so awful though, as Sir William appears to have spent quite a while in the area.
