This summer we spent a week in Bourgogne France
Us two with the kids and my parents discovered this lovely region and enjoyed every moment of it..
We drove with the kids from Bruxelles and joined my parents in Luxembourg. From there we joined roads and enjoyed the lovely country side all the way to Oyé in Bourgogne. I remember when the GPS told us that we had 5 km left to our destination. We opened all the windows in the car that was rolling at 50 km/h. The warm air was overwhelming with a sweet and subtile sent of fresh baked bread. I will never forget this.. As we drove the final half hour with our windows down, we kept our eyes open with much curiosity to spot the house that we would live i for the coming week. The house was wonderful, full of charm and all the comfort you could ask for. The two gardens gave to the street and to the back, with a view of the Bourgogne landscape. My favorite came to be the front garden with wild roses, old stones and lovely garden furniture. We spent a wonderful week in Oyé. Most of the time in the back yard swimming pool, but also in the surrounding towns and villages. Bourgogne France was truly a wonderful place and if you enjoy wine, you will find your self at the right place. The Bourgogne red wines are much like Pinot Noir wine, light and fruity but very interesting. As you can see, we took pictures of wine grapes growing wild in our parking lot.. Lovely holidays, I hope to come back one day!
