The door one enters when arriving at your destination in Le Vieux Couvent, Freyssinet.
Set way out in the countryside, there is a peacefulness and quietness that envelopes you as soon as you enter the gate. A slice of fresh lemon cake, ice water laced with lemons, and hot tea are waiting in the courtyard.
And the smell!!! So many scents in the air from a myriad of blooming things that it’s difficult to know where it’s coming from.
And the view from my room…
Just wanted to give you a glimpse into this magical place. It is way late here and tomorrow awaits! I haven’t slept in a bed since Friday night, but it doesn’t feel that way. So much beauty has a way of breathing life into the most weary traveler:)))))
P.S. If it weren’t so doggone late I would tell you what we had for supper and where we walked to afterwards, however I must get to bed…..suffice it to say that the dessert was a ripe peach stuffed with homemade peach ice cream……good thing I took a walk;)))
I so wish you were here to share in this with me. Now that would make it perfect.
