The French Countryside

I recently went away on a big trip to France. I hadn’t been since I was 14, and it was amazing. So beautiful, so different from our day-to-day lives — the food, the views, the people, everything. Here are a few photos from my trip:

We stayed at Corlac House, near Souillac, for a relaxing week. It’s located in the countryside of France’s south-west region.

Here is Corlac nestled in the valley among the walnut groves.

This is the view as you drive up to it — the neighbour’s barn.

And here are the neighbours chasing their flock.

We spent lots of time lounging around the pool, sunning and dipping.

This is a gate to the village cemetery — beautiful.

And the local rolling hills.

One of our many amazing lunches by the pool.

And another…

Here’s my brother-in-law and I playing ping-pong, one of my favourite past times.
