17 Jun 17th June 2010
The weeks are flying by now, and cannot believe the girls finish school in 2 weeks time for the Summer holidays. Villaroger is full of flowers.
We had a week down in Port Grimaud in May , had mixed weather but was nice to get away for a break. We stayed on a campsite in a Mobile Home. The Harley Davidson Rally was on at the first weekend we arrived, there were live bands, parades and lots going on. We hired bikes one day as it was quicker to get to nearby Ste Maxime than driving.
We have been busy at home building the much talked about Pizza/Bread Oven. Jonny has built it himself from scratch and it is now up and running. It makes great Pizzas, as well as Gambas Pil Pil. We are experimenting with other things too.
Our garden is really taking shape this year and my neighbours Iris’s that she gave me have come up and look lovley. We have planted to some Wysteria down the side of the house to grow up the walls.
The girls went away on a school trip to St Raphael for the week. They had fabulous weather and did things like kayaking, sailing and lots of sightseeing. Its the longest we’ve ever been apart but it was fine. Jonny and I had 3 days in Barolo, Italy, in the Piedmonte region, just over the border from us, whilst we they were away. The wine was very nice, quite expensive, especially the red , but a beautiful area. We ate great food and did lots of wine tasting. My favourite was the Moscato D’Asti. We brought back a few bottle too.
Jonny is currently plastering a chalet out , and we are hoping to camp next week at Lake Annecy. My mum and Tony are due out at the end of June. We didn’t get back to the UK at the end of April due to the Ash Cloud cancelling our flight.
The chalet is still free 17th – 24th July for anyone wanting a Summer holiday.
Les Arcs is due to open 11th Dec 2010 so for those wanting an early ski here in les Arcs /Val D’isere and Tignes we are offering a nightly rate of £50 pp fully catered inc all drinks up until Sat 19th Dec. Have a look at this video taken by the guests out that week last year to see the type of conditions you can expect due to our Valley been famous for early snow. Definitely Millionaires skiing that week, with no-one on the pistes. Book early to be sure of a room.
