GOOD MORNING! A PICTURE POSTCARD OF LE PUY NOTRE DAME
The sun is shining and it’s 30°C. Medieval Le Puy Notre Dame is full of little tiny rues darting off in all directions and so to relax and discover new walks is one of life’s pleasures here.
This is a photograph of rue Sainte which is a pretty little walk downhill looking towards Cix with a fabulous vista and is one of the most charming rues in the village. I am sure many of our guests will have already discovered this on their walks. We love it! On the roadside there are lots of hollyhocks and rambling roses interspersed with wild flowers and it just gets better as you descend into the vineyards you can see the bunches of grapes are so beautiful and beginning to ripen – it won’t be long before the vendage, (grape harvest), starts. Perhaps as little as three weeks if the weather holds.
Of course this walk has advantages in that ……. it’s only minutes from the bar too for a glass or two of chilled Chenin Blanc! Hang on Brian did you say you wanted to come with me!!!!! Oh no, you’ll already be there.
Looking forward to another day and another lovely walk – perhaps another glass of wine too!
