Two hours after leaving Paris we were on the terrace sipping wine and admiring the rolling landscape with our wonderful hosts, Marie-Monique & Roger Huss. Our room on the first floor had the most amazing bathroom, with a big 1930's style washbasin and shiny big taps. I think we had the only bath on that floor and this added to our sense of luxury.
Equipped with detailed maps we set off to explore the surrounding countryside. Having ordered in advance, we had a great roast chicken and "charlotte au poire" supper on Staurday night. Great cook and great service. Thanks for the loan of the wellies and raincoats!
