It’s been a while since you “traveled” with me, but I have two more posts from my trip to France and I think it’s time I shared them! In this one, I’m taking you to the Airbnb we stayed at in Roquefort les Pins…
After being in Ireland for the weekend and traveling ALL day, nothing was better than hitting up the local market for fresh baguettes, beautiful produce, far too much wine and pretty much all the cheese! I mean, how beautiful is that spread?!
Once we were fed, we could finally really appreciate what was around us. For me, I couldn’t believe that I was actually sitting on a terrace at a house nestled in the hills in the South of France. What?! I had only ever been to London before August – and now this?! It was all pretty surreal.
After our first night (of drinking copious amounts of wine), we woke up and discovered that the beautiful scenery was, in fact, still there. PHEW!
We were also still pretty wiped from the wedding weekend, so we decided to relax and enjoy the sunshine. Hanging by this pool with bottles of rose chilling in the fridge and tons of leftover cheese, baguettes and olives to nosh on all day? I guess I could get on board with that…
The very happy #NolanNation #CousinCation crew!!!
After being lazy all day, we thought it might be fun to get dressed and go out for a nice french meal. We found a restaurant online that we picked because (1) it wasn’t too far and (2) my cousin thought La Jarrerie might be pronounced like Jay Ray Ray! That pronunciation definitely stuck – especially after we discovered what a gem it was!
We all had their 3 course pre-fixe meal… I’m still dreaming about my Gazpacho, Salmon and Creme Brulee. Heaven!
Oh, and sometimes you pull up to this view… could it be more majestic?!
The rest of the time, we spent a lot of time away from the house during the day. You can read more about those little day trips in my previous posts about Eze, Nice, Antibes, and Cannes!
On our final night, we took advantage of the super fresh fish at the local market. We also threw some extra vegetables in there to make up for our bread/cheese consumption… not that I regret any of that!
That night as we ate our meal, we bonded over wine and “hot seat” questions as the sun went down… it was pretty much perfect.
Even though I have one more post for you guys, I have to sneak in a thank you to my amazing travel companions. I feel so lucky that we got to do this together, and even luckier that I get to call so many of you family. And no, this is not prank wars 🙂
Have any of you been to France? Where did you stay?!
