Driving along the Meuse is wonderful. The river is not crowded with house and the villages are scarce. Sometimes I was making a short cut of the loop of the river because I wanted to see some of the scenery from above. On one of my shortcut I had a fantastic view over a city that I later found out was Montherme. I decided to drive down there to see what it would look like. The road was absolutely marvellous; it was like driving along the serpentines in the mountains surrounded by forest and great views. Once I came down to the river I had to cross the river on a very large bridge compared to the city ��" I would almost estimate that the bridge was as large as the whole village.
The village was like any other village along the river build around a small town street with is 2 or 3 cafés, and a small market towards the river.
The current under the bridge was very heavy and the water dark brown and muddy. I was not the place I would like to dip my feet. As a village it was not worth much of a stop on such a cold day but I was standing there imagining the same view on a summer day and I decided that I had to come back and give this little village a second look.
The city has home page in French with gives some good information about this village, you can check http://www.montherme.fr if you are interested.
