Chateau du Portail…heaven on earth…a home away from home…magic. I could spend a million days in the garden here, watching the fish and frogs in the mote that meanders around the grounds, floating in pool, lying in the sun. Between the grass underfoot and blue skies above grows what seems to be a million and one flowers who’s scent blows through the trees with the wind, the sound lulling you to sleep on a chaise longue in the late afternoon. Eventually evening falls and you wake up and find fresh towels waiting beside you. Claude waves to you from the terrace inviting you for some rosé and hors d’œuvres. The sound of birds in the distance and Sinatra and Porter trickling out the window of the den blend together as you watch the clouds float away and Pierre pass by, fresh vegetables from the garden in hand, on his way back to the kitchen to prepare dinner.
Before you know it the sun sets, the dinner tables are set, and Claude invites you for dinner inside….but that my friends will have to wait for next time. Until then see you on twitter and facebook. Bisous!
