What if it's not flyable?

There is plenty of history around the area, and on the rare unflyable days we may go sight seeing. Entrevoux is a drawbridge protected fortress that is quite old, although some of the prison cells were constructed much more recently.
Moustiers, another of the many ancient towns, lots of interesting things to do, like walking down from launch on the old roman road, eating more food and drinking more wine. There's so much interesting history here, that I won't even go into it, just visit sometime and experience it!
