Stage 13 - Bourg D'Oisans to Valence

Sagan took another win as did the fairy tale lovers among us with the chateaux straight from story books. Engineering hearts skipped a beat too with L'Aqueduc de Saint-Nazaire.  

Stage 14  - Saint-Paul-Trois-Chateaux to Mende 

Tonnes of terracotta roofs, a gorge-ous l'Ardeche, Pont d'Arc and dam and some magic countryside. Meanwhile, back at the bike race, Spaniard Omar Fraile took Astana's first victory at this year's Tour. 

Stage 15  - Millau to Carcassonne 

Four words are enough to describe this one. Le Viaduc de Millau. oh, and enjoy. 

Stage 16  - Carcassonne to Bagneres-de-Luchon

The medieval city of Carcassonne - or is it King's Landing - is quite something to behold. So behold it via the Tour de France chopper. The riders are glad they can still see - this was the stage they copped the pepper spray the gendarmerie used to quell protesters. 

Stage 17  - Bagneres-de-Luchon to Saint-Lary-Soulan 

Short stage wasn't short on scenery.  

Stage 18  - Trie-sur-Baise to Pau

Come for Le Chateau de Marignan, stay for Les Jardins du Chateau de Viven 😍
