    Arriving at the Chateau

    July 8, 2017 in France

    We ate a quick breakfast, then headed off in our van to St Emilion. We walked around the UNESCO city before stopping for a picnic style lunch in the gardens of the cloisters. We drove to a nearby winery where we had a tour and wine tasting. On the way to the Chateau, we stopped at the Inter Hyper Mache for food and drinks, a big shopping experience.
    On arriving at La Roque-Gageac we saw our Chataeu perched in front of a mountain and just wow!! It was huge and looked amazing!! It had many levels, rooms decorated with antlers, chandeliers, old paintings and fireplaces. There was a pool, a large balcony for dinner, dinning room and gardens. We had French champagne and cheese to celebrate arriving and we enjoyed French wine with our steak dinner! There was fireworks nearby and everything was simply stunning and surreal! An amazing place to spend a week whilst celebrating Dad's 60th birthday!

    Sunday at the Chateau

    I walked to the boulangerie this morning and bought croissants. Mum and Dad picked up Greg and we ate a yummy breakfast. We headed out to a nearby town to check out the market and buy more cheese and wine. We enjoyed a delicious feast for lunch, sitting on the balcony.
    We lounged around having drinks by the pool before preparing dinner. We ate dinner on the balcony and enjoyed looking at the stars.Read more

    Monday at the Chateau

    July 10, 2017 in France

    We went for a walk around the back of town and then home to have croissants for breakfast.
    We went to the market in Saint-Cyprien where we bought yummy cheeses, salamis, material to make our Tour de France sign, wine, roast chicken and ventured home for a lunch feast.
    We then drove to pick up Nick from Bergerac while checking out all the Tour de France decorations. We had another stop at the Inter Mâché hyper to stock up supplies. Grace, Ali and I made lots of flowers in the car for decorations.
    Once home we got to work on making the big six metre sign saying "Get Well Richie", "Aussie Aussie Aussie" and "#porte2018" using spray paint. It looked great!
    We ate in the dinning room as it had been raining. A feast with chicken bits, pork skewers, greens, mushrooms and garlic bread.

    Le Tour de France

    July 11, 2017 in France

    We did a short walk to town to check out the Tour de France set up and the souvenirs. Breakfast was our favorite croissants!! We hung the sign from the balcony - "Go Richie". We also hung all the flowers we'd made on the balconies.
    The first excitement for the day was the parade of caravans coming through town. It was lots of fun! There was big floats and vans playing loud music and throwing out free things (junk). We tried to catch as much as we could.
    Lunch was another feast of fresh baguettes, cheeses, salamis, mussels and nachos.
    There was a lot of excitement with helicopters flying overhead and then the race came through. We all stood on the balcony with our sign up, madly waving at the helicopter. After we ran down and saw the last of the support cars pass through.
    Dad and Greg went and cut down some of the Tour de France signs. We looked back at the television footage and saw that we had made it on the TV! We also heard from people back in Melbourne that they saw us waving. It was very exciting for us all!
    We had a feast of ribs and vegetables for dinner! We sat in the sitting room and did the quiz before heading to bed.

    Wednesday at the Chateau

    July 12, 2017 in France

    Dad, Greg, Dane and I went for a walk down along the river to the caravan park. We ended up back in town for a coffee at the bakery. We ate croissants for breakfast before heading into the market at Sarlat. There was a traffic jam getting there, but the market was quite interesting with stalls selling cheeses, salamis and other goods. I bought the most expensive olive dip ever. We returned home for a lunch feast and had scallops as an added treat. We chilled out by the pool for the late afternoon.
    We ate pizzas for dinner and walnut cake for dessert whilst sitting on the balcony.

  • Day27

    We ate croissants for breakfast before heading to the kayaks. We were driven a short way up the river where we set off. It started to rain while we headed down so we stopped halfway for a coffee and to warm up. The sun finally came out and we headed off, occasionally we paddled, looked at chateaus from the river and made our way to our town. Lunch was French goodies, followed by an afternoon by the pool. Dane and I had an epic hit of pool tennis, followed by Aperol Spritz.
    Muriel cooked dinner for us tonight, gazpacho soup, followed by duck with roast potatoes and a slaw salad. There was a very impressive display of hot air balloons floating past which looked incredibly scenic. Dessert was cheese and an impressive raspberry cake with "60th" birthday candles. We had a bit of a dance before watching the world go by on the balcony.

    Friday in the Chateau

    July 14, 2017 in France

    We were up early to say goodbye to Nick and Greg with some croissants for breakfast. Dane, Grace and I walked down to see some sunflowers. We looked at the little market in town before heading back for some pool time.
    We had a lunch feast of copious amounts of cheese and salami with sparkling wine. Mum and I wandered through the town checking out shops before heading to the pool to escape the heat! We had Aperol Spritz and champagne by the pool before having dinner on the balcony. Sadly it's time to pack up and leave this magical place that we've called home.Read more
