Being lazy in Languedoc


The weather has been glorious these past nine days, really didn’t expect it at this time of year.

Nîmes was quieter than on our last visit but the amphitheatre still draws the visitors. The couple in front of us in the queue were from Indiana, the people behind us, from Toronto. At 2000 years old, all you can do is gaze in admiration at the skill of the craftsmen who built it and wonder how many modern buildings will stand for 2000 years …

Food with a view…

Last week, we had lunch at this beautiful Chateau, just outside Magalas. The food was delicious, the staff very friendly and the views just superb.  If you ever find yourself in this area of the wonderful Languedoc, or Occitanie as the region is now called, you should pay a visit, you’ll be glad you did.

Tenby weekend


The wet weather didn’t stop our enjoyment of the weekend in Tenby, a walled medieval town in Pembrokeshire, West Wales.
