We just came back from our summer holiday in the South of France. We do love this relaxing on the beach and sightseeing combination as well as the wonderful food and wines. This year we took Cute Doggy with us and my sister came to visit for five days too. Full house, but a lot of fun!

Here are a few highlights of our trip:

      It is a lovely, lovely part of the world, we highly recommend. We were not too sure how Cute Doggy would react as it was his first big trip but everything went well. He is definitely coming next year too! xx

  5. oh Katia, one of my favourite places in the world. I will live on the outskirts of Narbonne one day, with views of the canal du midi. I’m very disappointed that we didn’t get to France this year, but I have next years booked. I bet you had a fabulous it is a truly wonderful part of France. The first time I ever ate cassoulet was in Carcassonne too. Beautiful pictures 🙂
