That's me in the photo, showing off my new purchase last year, a lovely old Peugeot 206 Cabriolet! Having spent most of my adult life living in London a Cabriolet was not an option. In the Loire Valley, with it's amazing sun sets, miles of stunning countryside and beautiful scenery, it is the ONLY option – well alongside bicycles and helicopters and hot air balloons of course !
My lovely husband Marc, a true Tourangeaux and fabulous French Chef (yes, he really does do that for a living !) and I love hosting, love the interaction with our guests and love the fact that so many wonderful people from all over the world have discovered our little corner of the world by staying at our chalet. It really is a real get away from it all experience,and a wonderful base from which to explore this stunning part of rural France.
