Saint Emilion a short visit

Saint Emilion has always been on my radar for a visit and when I read a post by a friend the lovely Millie Brown from Travel Notecards I was definitely convinced to make the effort to visit this amazing village. We were heading to the Gers region and it was sort of on our way and I must say it was well worth the detour. Actually I would love to stay for a few days! Hugged by vineyards this ancient town is complete with cobbled streets and the most incredible underground monolithic church which was started by Saint Emilion. Renowned for its beautiful wines,  I highly recommend  a visit. I had so many photos to choose from- here are just a few to whet your appetite. xxPosted by Picasa

Week one continued- the rest of the Midi Pyrenees

Hello all the first week of our trip in France was so full of beauty and gorgeous food, mountain top village of Saint Cirqu Lapopie, rivers, markets and that oh, so French fairy tale setting that is the Midi Pyrenees Region. My favorite bridge in the town of Cahors which also boasts grape vines in the town near the bridge. We went to tiny villages like Lherm and Catus where we stayed. We roamed cobbled streets, ate way too much cheese and bread but it was countered by the beautiful salads we made from fresh local produce and oh the sweetest strawberries and melon and the tomatoes!! Heavenly! and did I mention the cheeses and bread!! You get the picture.
