A fantastic week, the weather has been great and the farmhouse was all we hoped it would be. There is so much to do in the area and the house is so tranquil and relaxing. Thanks for a smashing week, keep on rockin' Nigel.

Franco Folie

on wednesday night in La Rochelle, the Franco Folies hosted "Mika"for the last act of the festival. It was a great atmosphere around the port and in the town center. There were live bands playing in the streets, and street entertainers. The whole place was rocking with music.
Franco Folies is on every year in July, it lasts a week and its like a street music festival, there is a couple of stages set up where you have to pay to go in although you can hear the music any way, these are different prices depending on the bands playing, another couple of stages which are free to view and many of the bars and restaurants have indoor and outdoor bands playing, all withen walking distance while being entertained by street performers.

Thank you for a lovely stay, the house is beautiful and we have enjoyed the peace and quiet.
The weather has been fantasic and we have enjoyed going to Ile de Ré, La Rochelle and Rochefort.
We particulary enjoyed the fireworks in Landrais on "Bastille Day" and the band was good too.
Hope to be back again soon.

Here in sunny France, near La Rochelle the Sunflowers have just opened. This year they completely surround us. Absolutely beautiful!

Indian Festival at Chatelaillon

Not long ago we decided to take ourselves off to the Indian festival at Chatelaillon just south of La Rochelle, it was great, the atmosphere felt authentic with an Indian band playing live, jossticks burning. The main street was decorated with overhead garlands and large life size elephants were brightly decorated down both sides of the road. We were really looking forward to tasteing a nice spicy curry or samosas and onion bhajies etc..... Unfortunatly all that was on offer was moules & frites (mussels & chips) or kebabe & chips! A curryless Indian festival!
