News from the Languedoc
The holiday season is in full flight here in the Languedoc.
The South of France is sizzling nicely thank you very much. Sunflowers burst forth splattering the horizons with their vivid colour. I love sunflowers, how can you tire of such happy looking plants ? Sprayers are humming up and down the ripening vines whilst the buzz of harvesters drone amongst a cloud of thick dry dust from the wheat.
The Tour de France winds it's way through the country being beautifully captured on Google. Wonderfully clever for those of us who seem to spend their day's in front of a computer screen. Cycling mania hits us and guests bring their own bikes from the other side of the World and enjoy the uncrowded stretches of roads lined with Plane Trees shading them as they whizz along.
And me ? what am I up to ?
Well since keeping my money corner clear and pristine the interest in Le Chateau for sale and letting has gone through the roof. Coincidence,? marketing and sales skills ?
Who knows ?
But I'll let you into a little secret if you promise not to tell a soul.
It's so still, it's so hot, the sky is a piercing blue, the sunbeds are laid out beautifully round the clear pool and the umbrella is blowing oh so gently in the warm breeze and the guests are out.
Now if you were in my shoes what would you do ?
