I had a wonderful séjour on a beautiful country property called 'The Gables', where I was terribly spoilt...as always!
A gorgeous, relaxing vista at The Gables (the hanging pods(?) in the forefront are ready to become the most beautiful wisteria flower...I am sooo envious!!)
If you love gardening, or if you are keen to learn, you should check out....
Lovely books were floating around for me to read , such as this....
A good read by Jane Peach, see here
Delicious frenchy food was on offer, including baked Camembert...oh lordy..sooo yummy that I went looking for a cheese baker in town, but all sold out, zut!
This was accompanied with bread bits, toasted in olive oil and a little salt, and a dish containing chopped up dried cranberries and nuts for dipping.

And that's not all..... then there was dessert! A beautiful pear Tarte tatin to die for...
I am definitely going to give this a go too! Perhaps this recipe??

I also spent time with my very creative, 'blogging' cousin from A white farm. If you love clever and pretty photography, furniture makeovers and purchases...then head on over to Janelle's !
All in all a 'très bon voyage,' with a little french inspiration thrown in :)
A bientôt, Gigi
