Catching breath! That was the way of life last week until Thursday when Catherine arrived on the TGV from London for a few days.

Christmas is around the corner and the villages of the Luberon are starting to announce their annual festivities. We’ll keep you posted on them as and when they happen.

Meanwhile, Jose and Nicolas have been beavering away on the ‘mouse-house’ the roof extension for the doll collection and there has been a carcophany of banging and crashing as they break through into the house. Now we await the windows – ‘perhaps’ on the 10th, ‘perhaps’ on the 14th! It will become apparent, they will arrive when they arrive.

An amazing art

Nico says "Jose is old, but good!" We agree!

The one half of our wonderful team - Nicolas

Plastering with a cypress branch is messy business - ask Jose!

Olive, rosemary and bay branches for the Christmas feel
