Our Vacation Home in France

And now, finally to our vacation home in France.We are very happy, a good choice as we have a lot of room and everything is almost new and spick and spank. The owners are very creative people and this is definitely the most colorful one we have ever been to.Some examples:
The family room (TV area) going out to the deck.


The kitchen isn't less bright, equipped with German Siemens/Gaggenau appliances.Top notch like last year in Amsterdam.
The sunken cooking area has  a gas ring with a wok. And on the right is a spacious sink and fridge etc.The view from the family room with a huge glass dining table to the kitchen area.

The deck is inviting all day long with a big sail shading us from the sun. Again room at the table for 6 people.Pic later.


Looking at the master bedroom
and at the bathroom it becomes obvious that somebody is the artistic force in the house.The colorful walls are wallpapered with a silky like texture, not painted;same in the bathroom.

When we arrived looking for the address, Google maps was a totally lost.Tiny streets that intertwine with houses numbered 1a and 1 b.That means that our home owners had built their abode in grandma's former huge veggie garden.Now they have a joint smaller one.Granny is still active, in her eighties and insists on being called Oma= Granny. When we asked neighbors where our family lived, they didn't know their family name and couldn't point out the house.Only the first names revealed their thereabouts.
A word about the language later.
