After two hours, the Satnav declared

After two hours, the Satnav declared I had ”reached my destination” but there was no sign of the Château. In the hope of finding somebody to ask directions, I took the opportunity to explore the local area. I found a small bar which was open despite the time of day and lack of customers. When I asked after the location of the Domaine, my basic French caused raised eyebrows. Verbal directions were given and the patron found my nodding acknowledgment amusing; to ensure accuracy I asked him to draw a map. Retracing my route, I successfully found the Château entrance.
