Tucked away down a quiet lane, sits the rural oasis that is a converted pig barn and our home for one week. Located in Pampelonne, France, we sought peace and tranquility, as most of our days back home are surrounded by the constant hum of city life. Trams whiz by, cars travel at all hours of the day, but this little retreat in rural France, provided a calm escape from all of that. The only noises we heard were birds chirping, the laughter of our children as they threw countless balls to the resident dog Fidget, and the sigh of relief as we slowly sipped wine in the yard.

Exactly the kind of quiet we needed, the green space the children required and the location that opened up to the rest of the Mid- Pyrénées section of France. With hilltop towns to explore, castles to meander, lakes to walk around and ice cream to eat, this was the perfect place to rest our heads for the week.2015-04-02-Touls_473

The house was magnificent with a wood – burning stove that provided cozy evenings for the entire family and the house was big enough for us to stretch our legs and feel right at home.
