We have now retired in Rural France and live in a stunning village with a beautiful Château. I would like to share our new life with you. We have 7 grandchildren who live in the UK. Sharing our French life, we have a cat Florence, along with lots of new Wildlife friends....I hope you enjoy my blog, feel free to join in.
Well Christmas is over, so we make our way back to France. We decided to have a stopover half way to break the journey up a bit as it gets dark quite early now. We found this lovely place and fortunately booked prior to arriving. It was a shame it was such a dreary, dismal, damp day as we couldn't take photos to appreciate the setting by the River, but you will see from their website was a lovely place it is. The bedroom was lovely and cosy with a smart shower room, and tea and coffee facilities which is unheard of in France. We had a delicious meal in the restaurant, food was amazing, and was lovely just to retreat to our room after the meal.
A selection of 9 sugars, and 12 coffees to choose from.
Brrrrr, Frosty this morning -4 last night. Although it is beautiful sunshine and a lovely blue sky, the perfect day for wrapping up and going for a brisk walk. The leaves looked pretty covered in Frost against the sky...glistening... and the leaves crisp under foot.....lovely and fresh.
We had a lovely stroll around Poitiers today, the Christmas Market was on, and all the decorations are lightening up the streets. We had a lovely lazy, boozy (well on my part, hubby driving) lunch, lovely atmosphere, everyone getting into the Festive spirit.
