Escape to the countryside of South Western France

Chateau Montfort

Winter’s Day


Stanley, full flight and turbo-powered!

A brief post to wish you all a very happy Chinese Year of the Dog!

These pics were taken on one of our daily dog walks with Stanley (the wire-haired dachshund) and Adelaide, the standard poodle. There’s an old Roman road on the ridge behind Montfort lined with sweet chestnuts and oak trees. On a clear day, it feels like to you can reach out and touch the Pyrenees from there. If ever walking feels like a chore, it certainly doesn’t when you reach the top of the hill!

There are advantages to being low to the ground!
