Friday French Favourites

Wow, this seems to be all I can manage to blog over here lately! I did just pick up my sewing machine from her little tune up yesterday, so hopefully that will help get me motivated to actually craft something!

Anyway, Friday French Favourites! Today I want to show you another one of my favourite little spots we visited while in France, the Moulin de Fourges. Before we left for France we had booked a day trip that did Monet's garden in Giverny in the morning and the Palace of Versailles in the afternoon, with lunch included. I'm imagining a little pit stop at some roadhouse type thing and then we pull up to this pretty much in the middle of nowhere.

It was just beautiful. They have taken this old mill and turned it into a restaurant and we all sat down to a gorgeous three course lunch, with the wine positively flowing! It really was a very welcome surprise.

I would highly recommend doing those day trip things when visiting somewhere new, you never know what sort of places they will take you to!

So enchanting and beautiful! I must say I am a tad (to say the least) jealous :)

Lovely places like this make the journey as enjoyable as the destination.

Here's my contribution this week :

It certainly was a lovely spot and the lunch was memorable. I posted yesterday about Arles, but didn't get around to my comment till today. Old age maybe??
