Booking the great getaway

Today I booked our proper summer holiday - two weeks in September in South-west France. We've found a fabulous looking small house called L'Ancienne Pharmacie in a small bastide town called Mirepoix in the Ariege department of the Midi-Pyrenees. It's the first time we've gone for a property in a village rather than in a converted farm complex. So it should be an adventure!

Outside the school holidays it will be quiet. The property is near a cafe in a covered colonnade and has a roof garden where we'll be able to sit and read and sip chilled Chablis and other beautifully textured grape-based beverages.

And we go in six weeks - yay!!!!!

Sounds absolutely awful. Hope you cope with it.

Mmmm sounds great. We've just booked ours as well, but over in Provence. In approximately 44 days and 5 mins
