It’s host to the largest antique market outside of Paris. The market takes place every Sunday and we arrived on the hottest, busiest market day of the year~ Happy Bastille Day! We did NOT arrive early~ much regret! I can not emphasis enough- Get there early! The parking is not good. If you are doing it with children- make sure they have cold drinks and one of those little leash backpacks might be helpful, or in our case, a really nice dad that will ride you around on his shoulders all afternoon.

After a few hours of being pushed through hot crowds the kids and our dear family friend traveling with us took leave and went back to the farm house for some refreshing pool time! This gave me hours of peace to stroll through the market and pick through treasures.

Can you read the words on the windows? The cafe of Chocolate?! How did I miss this before I sat down and ordered at the cafe across the street?

 

Spartacus and I stopped for lunch at one of the many river side cafe’s. What to order?

What to order?

Foie Gras of course! Foie Gras salad for me and Foie Gras sandwich for Spartacus (I didn’t know there was such a thing? Do they only serve it that way for tourist?) Both meals were accompanied by a little dollop of caramelized onion compote- any one got this recipe?! I must learned to replicate.

VIVA la FRANCE!

  1. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your post and pictures (I spent the morning catching up). It all looks awesome…the flowers, the vineyards, the castles, THE ANTIQUE MARKET!!!, and of course the fruits and foods you made! I know you are an awesome cook and your dinner looked delish! Thank you for sharing your adventures…I’m trying not to be jealous. Lol. Oh, and I’m really dumb when it comes to traveling and booking deals. How did you find that lovely farmhouse? Hugs!

    • We booked through VRBO I think its a good solution, but I don’t love it. It doesn’t provide assurances for either “party” with out “insurance”. I ended up using it however because the price was right and it was available. I would have preferred using other companies but the ones I wanted were already booked. Enjoy the photos, we feel very lucky to have these experiences. However, we love America and miss it everyday! If there had been/was a job where Spartacus could make good money with out traveling and we could live in a place we liked (South Carolina ~give or take) it would be harder for us to stay here long term. This last month has been like a long vacation and I feel ready to go home to the states, but I am not going to waist the opportunity! We must learn German!!! We must learn to feel at home here! We must share our insights with others. Love you and thanks for reading — AND COMMENTING!

  2. I’m sure you do miss the states. There really is no place like home…I even felt that from just our short week in London on our honeymoon….where it’s not so much different and people speak English! I would just view this as an opportunity of a lifetime and I’m glad you are taking advantage of the opportunity. It will be something you all can take with you throughout your life and I’m sure provide a deeper love for the states (and think how awesome it will feel when you get back). Ariel is going into her 4th year of German. She is in the International Baccalaureate (IB) program here and foreign language is required through graduation. She loves it and gets to speak with Mike’s mom occasionally, and with the exchange students at Epcot. Lol…you’ll pick up the language…and the kiddos will be speaking it before you know it! That will give them so many opportunities!
    Oh, I have a friend here who uses VRBO and loves it, but I’ve been weary but maybe I should give it a try. Thanks again…I’m not only living the pictures, but learning from your blog too! Love you!
