We couldn't have asked for better weather. Everyday sunshine and temperatures in the late 20s or early 30s. In-between visits to the supermarché to stock up on essentials, we lounged in the garden, played pétanque, went on long walks, ate a LOT of cakes, had BBQs on a daily basis, and adopted our neighbours' cats. Here's a little photo diary of our time there:
We discovered the most beautiful sparkling cider from Normandy:
And were mesmerised by dragonflies down by the river:
Me looking very hot and bothered after a 3 mile walk...
Flowers we collected for our table that night:
Much cake was eaten:
I was way too excited about finding massive macaroons in the supermarket (who knew those existed?!!)...
... and finding my favourite flavour of sorbet
I love French houses. The brickwork is always so rustique and dreamy
Even the paving beneath your feet is awesome:
Homely touches in our little maison. Including a picture I brought back from Paris, towels from Matalan, and a milk jug gifted to us by a craftman in Limoges who also kindly gifted us plenty of crockery too
Our gold fish consume anything and everything that hits the water. Including pesky hornets:
Purchases included a French magazine, Oreo hot chocolate for back home, and a new pair of heels (vlog to follow!)
I will never tire of France. Next on my bucket list: Avignon and Dijon.
Have you ever been to France?
