Allez Allez Petite Rouge

Yeah, we are on holiday in the South of France. John’s friend Roland came to pick us up from the Bordeaux airport and brought us back to this lovely little town near his house…

Remember that movie awhile back called Chocolat with Johnny Depp and cast? Well it was supposed to have been based on this town. We are going to work out a trip to the chocolate store if we can…apparently there are no regular store hours!

Everything at once feels so quaint and laid back, lovely. Apparently, one of the nicest markets is in this square on a Saturday. I guess we will have to come again. I hope some of my French comes back.

We walked around the corner from the main square to see 16th century Henry 4’s castle!…

This is Roland’s little town. I love love love the shutters. It makes the town look all boarded up and abandoned but really they are shut instead of curtains. As you can also see its sunny and nice out!…
