Another Reason To Love France

Another Reason To Love France


Ok, I'm a Francophile. Not that I have anything against the splendors of my own country but some things here are incomparable.

We had a long Sunday lunch with our colleague Nathalie of Avignon Daily Photo and some of her family. She and her partner live in a centuries-old stone farmhouse outside of Avignon, near the wine making town of Beaumes de Venise. We walked along the hillside after the meal, past an old church, vineyards and the canal that irrigates them. We saw grassy plants covered with tiny white snails.

The house has four bedrooms and you can rent it for a week during the summer. It would be heaven. Click here to get information. Do it. There are only the two of us so if anyone is interested in splitting it next summer let me know.

Some things never change. France is still gorgeous.

Nice promise of wine... I believe 2014 will be a good 'cru'.

Beautiful countryside, Bob, and getting together with like-minded people is always welcome.

There she is, the wonderful Nathalie. I have looked at the photos of her house before and it looks wonderful.
