A Week in Provence

We stayed with Tory, Tati and their two pussy cats – Bacchus and Sarko in Serres.

This is our new best buddy, Tati the Perrier (Poodle and Terrier) P1030019And two cats – Sarko and BacchusIMG_2851who taught us about house rules.

IMG_2860 When they had their meals, we had to stay outside – and watched longingly.IMG_2861Tory showed us lots of sights in Avignon …IMG_2611 We went to the Saturday market in Pernes-les-Fontaines and saw some of the many fountainsIMG_2789 A lovely lunch at Cafe Fleurs in L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and found lovely shops.IMG_2820At Carpentras, Jouvaud Patissier was one of the shops Mummy loved!

IMG_3148 IMG_3157 IMG_3182with the Dentelles de Montmiral mountains in the backgroundIMG_3169 through the vineyards of Beaumes de Venise down to the town.IMG_3146Mont Ventoux was a little elusive but we did see it.IMG_3402We went for walks by the canalsIMG_2509And in the vineyardsIMG_3257But after each trip we loved returning home to Tory and Tati’s home in Serres.  We loved running in her garden …IMG_2531 Wild George!IMG_2921George and Tati would play
IMG_2854While I observed …IMG_2682Sometimes George will seek out Bacchus for a challenge!IMG_3092And for special occasions, we were allowed to sit by the pool for sunsets.IMG_3425IMG_3417But of course before returning to being city furries again, we had a “toilettage” at Chez Tory by Cecile!

IMG_3104IMG_3107IMG_3112IMG_3117Then it was Tati’s turn …IMG_3120IMG_3121As I observed how it’s done.IMG_3127May’s comments:  We kept up with our blog during our travels. We would go explore during the day and then back at Tory’s I would sit and document our adventures for the day.

Sometimes in the garden …The Blogger hard at workIn the kitchenIMG_2901 or in bed.unnamed-7We had a lovely week in Provence. It all came and went too fast. So many more places to go to. We found many dog-friendly places.

Tory lives in her home surrounded by vineyards with view of Mont Ventoux. She insists that I have not seen it properly yet and that’s a reason to come back.DSC00044

She also has a gite (a holiday apartment) called Les Cerisiers to let with a private pool,  and since she has met Miss Darcy & Co. she has agreed to let dogs up to cockapoo size to stay!!! IMG_3406Hooray!
