Just a heads up...we opened up the 2011 schedule at La Maisonnette! You can view all the details and calendar here.
A few notes I'd like to share regarding La Maisonnette:
1. Many thanks to the bloggers who've stayed here and taken such good care of our cottage. We appreciate you so much and are thrilled to share this part of our life with you. Our manager says that almost without exception, that blog reader guests have been clean, respectful, friendly and interesting. Merci beaucoup many times over!
2. I love staring at this image above...it captures the magic of Beynac so perfectly and also depicts the grassy hill next to the cottage in such a lovely way. When there a few months ago checking up on things, the Chief Architect of France (the same person who has to approve anything we do to the exterior of our cottage) ordered a fence erected along the cobblestone path until the restoration on a portion of the 850-year-old castle wall is completed. We are hoping its restoration lasts the same amount of time as ours :)
3. Nicole and Candace are hosting a photography retreat in Beynac this week. It's been fun to share with them our favorite little spots. I hope everyone loves the area (and foie gras) as much as we do.
4. Here's a fun Rick Steves video that gives a bit of history on the village and surrounding area. He is a big fan too!
