Hello! Ca va? Yes, we have been in France for 9 days, in the beautiful village of Lauzerte. It has been bliss discovering the Tarn et Garonne, one of the least populated areas of France. We hardly passed any other cars on the road whilst out on our wee jaunts. A few walkers pass through the hill top village though as it sits on the Pilgrims route to Santiago de Compestela.
The countryside is rolling and fertile. Melons, peaches, apricots, nectarines, quinces are all grown. Walnuts and figs self seed and grow contentedly on the road sides. Fields full of sunflowers. The harvest is nearly in.
We swam most evenings at the local swimming lake near Moncuq, when the weather was good and for the most part it was hot but there were a couple of rainy, cool days so we visited museums and churches then!
We had a great day in Cahors, happening upon the town's arty garden festival.....
and spent another lovely day out at Chateau de Bonaguil .....
Will be back soon with some foodie photos. Need to get to my bed .... we were up before 6 am to begin a day of travel and I am yawning my head off. Night, night!
