    That sounds absolutely fantastic, normal, I’m not sure, perhaps they just pushed the boat out for visitors but very nice all the same.

    Yes we did the cheese. Everything we had on that lunch was produced by Roger & Paulette, both gone now sadly. He was a true Frenchman, when we had my mum over for a little holiday , he used to flirt like mad with her, and squeeze her on the ‘ bonjour’ bit!!   Mum thought it was hilarious!    :yahoo:

    I imagine after a blow out meal like that at lunchtime that the evening is, as the saying goes, “Une soupe, une pipe et au lit.”
