Summer time

September approaches in big steps and you can smell it in the air – the end is close. The end of those warm and sunny t-shirt & short days.

We had a great summer,  like always I would say  .) Only too short, like always.

We spent some beautiful days with friends at their family country house close to Aix-en-Provence. A beautiful 200years old mansion with a big garden with a pool, magnificent old sycamore trees and a great terrace where we drank litres and litres of delicious rosé wine and ate tons of the most delicious tomatoes that came just from the neighbor’s’ garden ! Merci Nathalie & Jerôme!

Bringnoles4 Delicious – I had forgotten what tomatoes really tasted like.

And then we went off for a family vacation just the three of us, two weeks in a little house lost in the Roussillon, close to Perpignan.

LanguedocRoussillon is a beautiful region in the south of France, right at the border to Spain. It is very preserved and except for the vineyards and the fruit trees in the valley it has kept its savage landscape quite well .  A lot of green, beautiful old little villages and farms and pretty much nothing else in the countryside…

We spent most of the time on our terrace reading, relaxing, enyoing the view..
