... the mountain it was sunny!
And our meal at Chez David was fab. All four of us had magnificent meals.
We left sadly on Wednesday morning. We won't be back for nine months. It has been such a joy to have friends in this part of France, and the opportunity to speak English! S&S were waiting for a load of sand to arrive in preparation for laying floors at the end of October. When we come back next year, they should be living in their new ...

It didn't say this when we booked. I feel a complaint coming on. Restaurant expensive too. We drove down to the town for dinner. Only 5 mins away. Off to Sos del Rey Catolico. SPAIN. Not a clue about this area but the old mediaeval town looks nice. Good old ...
