My family have been so supportive and enthusiastic about our move to France and have loved sharing our French Adventure via our blog every step of the way. Last week it was time for some of them to come and see our French house for real.
My Mum, Sister and brother in law all flew over for a weeks holiday and as you will have seen in my last post some work, well they did offer.
Thankfully the weather obliged us and the sun most defiantly had his hat on, even if not for every moment, he was shy at the beginning of the week but had lost all his inhibitions by the end of the week and shone brightly for us and gave us all some lovely vitamin D as a gift.
Its really lovely to share our dream with family and friends, and its great when they come as it makes us take some time out from renovations to explore and enjoy all that this amazing part of France has to offer.
Here are some photo galleries of their French Adventures.

A trip to Albi Marché aux puces, the girls had lots of bargains.
A visit to Chateau Fort Mauriac, which is only minutes away from us, parts of it date back to the 11th century, we had a lovely tour in english and managed to get mum down the steepest set of steps into the terraced garden below the chateau. Well worth a visit if your in this part of France.
A game of Pétanque in the garden the night before they went home, and Digger Dave definitely has the back for this game he beat us all.
Heres to your next visit……
