Our holidays (Part II)

After a couple of days in the Dordogne we continued on to the South-West coast of France (Acquitainbe) where we rented this holiday villa for a week. Lovely, quiet place, close to the sea (no beach pictures... forgot our cameras!).
We went to the beach, walked, biked, visited small villages, nothing spectacular, but relaxing & fun!

Senna thought that she was back home in Brazil, she right away found her spot again, close to the swimming pool!

Friends forever!!

Can you imagine how surprised we were when we saw these creatures all of a sudden, close to the golfcourse?

Apparently there was a circus in town and the animals needed something to nibble!!

Have a great weekend!!

Our holidays (Part I)

Our first stop was the gorgeous hotel Chateau Les Merles.
A castle almost completely renovated and decorated with lots of black & white and some dots of colour (you could see that here).

They have their own vineyard & a big garden where they grow the majority of the vegetables they use in their kitchen (they have a bistrot as well as a restaurant).

While we were there, we also visited Bergerac, a lovely small town, little shops, small restaurants and nice old houses.

And of course there was Cyrano (de Bergerac)

More to come soon...

But for now I wish you all a lovely sunny weekend... enjoy!

P.S. Have a look at Madelief's blog... eye candy!!
& a give-away until September 1st!

Wishing you a good start of the weekend.
