I am doing 4 posts about our recent holiday to France as we stayed at 3 different locations so loads of info and photos. I had booked a week at a house in the pretty Medieval village of Turenne. It's an hour and 20 mins to the East of Bordeaux, about a 10 hour drive from here. We stopped this side of Paris for the night to break the journey and had an easy run down. I took a photo as we came into the village of Turenne, it's amazing. The place we were staying at was right next to the tower of the castle at the top of the village. There is also a photo of the house taken from the castle showing the pool and the beautiful view we had from the property. It was an old farm house that has been restored by the owners, it's been in the family since the 1800's. Our friends, Anne and Pete, plus their 2 girls arrived later that evening. I'd done a BBQ, the weather was perfect and the wine chilled. We explored the area but also relaxed at the house as there was our own pool which Jacob and Abi had great fun in. We also went to caves near by that you took a train down to get into. It was then an hour and a half of a guided tour that was well worth it - see photo. Another favourite day was at the local lake, I've included a variety of photos from there. I will do another post as there are too many photos to include in this one
