Ooh La La a Cheeky Week In France

Me and my husband decided to have “a cheeky weeks holiday” we usually go for two weeks in the summer but we thought we would give somewhere else a try (we usually go to Italy) so we booked a Gite just outside Bergerac.  The Gite was called Le Bois De Penaud and is run by a lovely couple called Julie and Jerry and their gorgeous 4 legged friends (all which are rescue animals) Honey and Salsa the dogs, Tenka and Kylie the cats and 2 lovely horses.  The place is absolutely beautiful so peaceful and quiet and the pool area is a pleasure to be in, it’s a lovely size, Jerry keeps it immaculate with sun loungers and a stone table and chairs, just lovely.

Anyway enough of that we had 3 days of lovely sunshine and the other 3 were a bit iffy but we did manage to get out to a lovely village called St. Emilion a beautiful little village with many shops selling wine as the region is teaming with vineyards.  There were some lovely old architecture and some fascinating buildings, I have put some pictures underneath.

I know this doesn’t have much to do with upcycling furniture but what the heck, we had a lovely time at the gite and Bergerac is a lovely town with quite a lot going on.

Pictures of the 4 legged friends and they were very well behaved.
