Our Holiday Home In Lorignac, France

As you probably know last week I went on holiday. It was real down time – my phone was switched off and I did lots of simple things which included swimming, eating, drinking, sleeping, reading, walking and playing board games. I’m very pleased to be able to bring you some travel related blog posts too! Today I’m going to show you around the place we stayed. It was very beautiful, homely and clean.

The heated pool was a salt water pool, not chlorine – at first I was unsure what this would be like but I much preferred it to chlorine!

The kitchen was huge and we spent most evenings cooking meat in the oven and preparing salads and French bread on the rustic worktops, which we would then eat outside with the cricket soundtrack in the background. I swam around 30 lengths a day in the pool, which I think was about 10 metres in length.

The only slight downside to the location was finding places to eat. Rural French business owners seemed to have a very relaxed attitudes to opening times! Nevertheless we did always manage to find somewhere and weren’t far from the nearest supermarket.

Expect more photos from the trip later this week!
