France Travel

A house in the hills – Saint Laurent d’Andenay

July 4, 2014

I had spent a lot of time in Europe previously, my mum let me plan out road trip through France and Italy. Lucky? Yes. 

There was 1 spare night and I wanted to go somewhere completly unknown and different so I threw a mental dart at a map of the south of France and unknowingly scored a bulls eye.

The tiny village has 200 year old farm houses and a bakery, old wells and full of character and local cheese! Yes please! 

I found our accommodation on Air Bnb (which I can’t recommend highly enough) and our hosts made the trip what it was.  We stayed in their newly renovated old farm house and barn in the French Country side, which was surreal.

Of course wine and cheese was consumed, keeping in line with the french culture and all it has to offer. We were staying in the Burgandy provence which is one of the most lucious wine regions on the world.

Our hosts graciously invited us into their wine cellar with some friends for merlot and nibbles then took us to see their horses. Anyone know knows my family knows that my sister and mum are horse crazy so to ride horses in the french countryside whilst watching the sun set (at 10.30pm) was a moment none of us will forget.

The kindness, hospitality and friendship we received from Sandra and Remy reminded me of why I travel, for little moments like these. I cannot recommend this place enough, have a look at the photos and to book click here!

We are having the best time, and I have eaten an illegal amount of cheese, as expected. Where was a place you traveled to that was just oh so special and something you’ll always remember?

    That looks divine! We stayed in a cute cottage through AirBnB in Provence and it was such a highlight of our trip too. Looking forward to following the rest of your travels x
