Back Home in France


We've arrived back home in France - finally!  All year long, I plan, organize and scheme how I am going to spend another week in France.  This year, in addition to our three weeks at the Chateau for our creative retreat, we also rented a home in Septfond for a week with family.  I've had my eye on this old house for a few years now - just waiting to be able to rent it so I could get inside!  It's a grand old home that's in the process of being renovated by a young couple.  Each room is beautiful and appointed with just the right amount of decor - simple but elegant...




Even the gardens have been historically planned so that it looks like an 18th century French garden.  So far we have had rain on day one, so we took a long walk on the country roads and then ended up back inside talking, eating a resting up.  Tomorrow will be our first day out...I think we will hit the Caussade Farmer's Market...more to come soon!

So, this young couple in Septfond is renting out this house like a B&B?
