I had hoped to spend a few weeks in the French countryside sometime in my life. I had the chance while renting this sweet apartment central to everything I wanted to experience. I was there for two weeks. I was able to relax, feel the hometown vibe at the weekly farmer's market, experience the unique selection of restaurants and bars and sidewalk cafes. All were within a 5 minute walk- through the walled city streets, or just on the outskirts of the old town. In addition, I was able to use a bicycle to ride into the countryside, to the cherry orchards and see the ripe fruit on the tress, sneak a few ripe samples as I made my way further onto hiking trails and local Chateau for wine tasting. I bought local produce and meats to recreate some of the dished I enjoyed in the Catalan style in the well equipped kitchen with all the conveniences of home. I sat in the square and painted and enjoyed conversations with local folks who appreciated my efforts and told me the age of the Sycamores in the neighborhood- over 200 years old. It was a short drive to the ocean and mountains for a change in scenery and was as convenient as advertised. Thank you for letting me share your home. I will be back.
