Leaving the Place Massena we follow the Quai St.-Jean Baptiste and Quai Place d'Armes till we reach the Place St.-Barthelemy (opposite an iron cross), where we turn to the left and take a road on our right, at the corner of which is situated Villa Cauvin. The winding road ascends, and the pedestrian is able to shorten the distance by taking, from time to time, a short cut instead of keeping to the main road. An ascent of half an hour...
