October B&B Weekend

Last weekend, I headed to the South of France to visit my Mamie (my 89 year old grandmother) and her two equally just as cool friends (who are also 89, Madame T and Madame K). I’m convinced they would make a killing being on a reality tv show.

I spent Saturday afternoong with them until my dad came to pick me up as my step mum landed in Marseille that afternoon and we headed to Arles to check into a bed and breakfast for the evening.

What I walked into was a duplicate smaller version of The Secret Garden (like in the movie), incredible place and I can’t even explain how pretty it was so the pictures will have try to put into words what I can’t.

If ever, you’re in the South of France, please please check out this little piece of heaven.

Arles is equally gorgeous – a 5-10 minute drive from the B&B

Spent Sunday with everyone, visiting Quissac and stopped at a small restaurant at a B&B on the way to Sauve.

Not without taking pictures and a video of bulls of course…

We dropped my Mamie around dinner and I headed to the train station to come back to a dark Paris.
Tired but happy to have spent some time with her.
