Sizzling Summer Sun

IMG_3821

Phew its been so hot here in Fayssac over the last few weeks, so I’m happy to report summer has officially started. The kids have broken up from school and France has begun to shut down for July and August, mind you its not really open for business most of the rest of the time, which is probably why I like it here so much.

We attended our first apero concert of the summer at Perye Rose last Wednesday. It was so lovely to see the vineyard again and the lovely owner Astrid; she and her sons make you feel so welcome. Friends gather, drink wine, listen to music, eat great food and catch up on all that’s happened over the last week.

The views are stunning.

And the sunsets are beautiful.

Back at Maison Murier we have been busy working in the loft creating new bedrooms and bathrooms [blog post to follow on that], and in the garden we have been creating a roundabout in our driveway.

Our dear cousin Sheri bought us an olive tree, and we have used it as a feature in the centre.

And the sunflowers have started to flower in droves, creating a sea of bright yellow, truly a site that should be experienced.

Our first summer visitors have arrived to relax and soak up the suns rays.

Hello summer, don’t rush by too quickly.

Happy weekend everyone.
