??South of France, Province, Cotignac??

Hi? people of Earth? now we are in Cotignac which is a small? but international village with all kinds of people living here including Americans??, Canadians, Auzzies and even some kiwis?. The town is pretty simple but completely amazing. It has a couple of very nice restaurants a phew bars and some local produce and gift? shops. Not to mention the bakeries......yumm

Our house that we are staying in is another typical house? in the area. I'll give you a run down⏬ of it - you walk in to the kitchen/dinning room and if you go down the stairs you get to the basement. If you go up you will come to mum and dads level with bedroom and bathroom. Then you go up again to come to Jack's bedroom and bathroom. Then if you go up one more level you come to the lounge with full on bar and a very nice view of the village. Then last but not least you go up one more level to get to my room at the top. So our house is 6 stories - never had that before, have you?.

Since dad is the chef? and most of the time me, Jack and mum are always upstairs, dad has to go for a work out, up 4 stair cases of stairs to deliver our food and beverages.

P.s one thing that I do is I am about to walk out the door and I forget my hat....... Oh no, I have to go back up 5 stories to get to my rom. Fun fun fun. Anyway it's time to give you a summary of what we do in Cotignac?.

Dad parked the car? in the garage and claimed that he got hit? by the concrete wall as he was parking. We decide to leave the car where it is and stay in the village due to the rain that is coming over?. Every morning we go down to the local cafe and mum and dad have a coffee and me and Jack raid the bakery?. On the the last afternoon? we did a big walk around the ruins of an old fort and all through the paths carved in the wall. After that we did what the French do and have a long lunch at the local restaurant called ?La table. We have really enjoyed walking everywhere and have loved our village so much we haven't left in 3 days - it has been a good change not having to drive.

Mum has us on another look out- Brad and Angelina have a chateau near here - we don't spot them but mum has found their wine at a local wine shop. It is a Rose wine from their winery - it is called Chateau Miraval and it's very nice according to mum.

Now it's that time again, time to move to our next location - so see you in Uzès?.

Looks like you guys are having amazing time! Sam shows me bits of your travels. I have to comment because our very good friends live in Cotignac and when Sam was a baby his dad gave him a drink from the fountain there. I was very cross as the mum because I worried it wasn't sterilised and he'd get ill! (But he seems to have been fine for 12 years!)
