After travelling through Germany and Switserland (we slept in Germany) we ended up in Italy.
This great house stood on a hill overlooking the Mediteranian sea.Villa Azzura (the blue villa).
We spend the night in a small village near a monastery.And with the monastery there are these booths were you can buy all kinds of "kitschy"religious items which ilove.
Seeing Pinocchio makes you miss you kids ( although i don't think my eleven year old would still want to take a ride)
Because of the weather we decided not to take the ferry to Corsica and travelled on through Monaco towards the Cote d'Azur. We made a quick stop in Monaco and saw a bit of the Formule 1 training day.
So we ended up in a small village in "la douce France" in the hills behind Cannes.
The colours of the South of France are so fantastic.
Blue and terracotta.
Can you imagine my excitement when i found out that ther was a big flea market in the village that morning? I'll show you the stuff i bought there later.
These are the cutest sweets i ever saw for when you get married or a child is born.
Then we travelled on towards St.Tropez and Port Grimaud. Stayed there and...
Laid on the beach to soak up some sun in the morning....
Did some sightseeing.....
And some more..
Visited quite a few Chateaus to buy a lot of bottles of Rosé, (tasted them first of course) :)
Enjoyed some fine dining with the magnificent French Cuisine.
After that we drove back home and found our children (and my parents) in great shape and did not get the impression that they missed us as much as we missed them ;). Sowe might go again next year!
So it's back to work today and i'll try and read a lot of posts i missed from you my dears. XX
(Sorry this post is so long, i have many more pictures and it was hard to make a selection.)
