It’s been another early start. My sister and I were up yesterday morning at 04:15 to get a flight to Bordeaux from Gatwick airport. Fortunately the flight was only 1.5 hours and we made it safely to France. The sun was out although the air has been pretty cool since we stepped off the plane.

I’ve been working on a site with mum for their B&B and we’ve scrambled together something today (still lots to do) but I wanted to get it up on here as soon as possible so we can start spreading the word and encouraging people all over the world to come and stay in their lovely new home – Le Vieux Couvent.

The beautiful converted convent is situated in a delightful village called Lauzun in the Lot et Garonne. They have four antique furnished bedrooms ( double or twin) and an orangerie with it’s own living room and kitchen that is suitable for wheel chairs and well behaved dogs.

Since moving here at the start of August they have had guests staying every day which has been a little mad but exciting at the same time. There is a real sense of community in the village and they have a lot of friends around for support and encouragement as this is something very new and ambitious.

I’m coming back again in October and can’t wait to see how things have developed and hopefully meet future guests. If you are looking to visit France anytime soon and fancy taking a trip to the Lot et Garonne, Bergerac airport is only a 25 minute drive away and Bordeaux is 1 hour 40 minutes. Please visit their site and get in touch before they are fully booked!
