Watching the Sunset at Caseneuve

We’ve had a bit of a shift around of the furniture on our terrace this summer and if I’m honest I wish we’d done it years ago. Since buying the house we’ve had ‘Conversation-corner’ , which is made up of a couple of old iron cots, with old futon mattresses, throws and cushions, surrounded by…

Back in Provence and a sensory massage

It would be fair to say that it has taken us a couple of days to settle down into life again in Provence after having spent 17 weeks in the UK (the longest time we’ve spent there since we bought our house here 4 years ago). Then there was the additional little spanner thrown into…

Fifi’s French Adventure Day 2 – Roscoff to The Sunflower fields

Rolling off the ferry at Roscoff yesterday morning was just lovely, it may have been a grey and slightly damp morning, but the roof was open and we were back in France and the adventure really was underway.

Pottering in Provence #1

Missing The Vaucluse and watching any programmes we can find that mention Provence. Everything seems focused on Marseille and The Camargue, so we’ve started thinking about where we would go and what we would see instead
