Hôtel Restaurant les Templiers Collioure France

On this mild clear evening the sun is going down, the scene is enlightened by the lights of the harbour front cafés and bars and the spot lights focused on Collioure’s church, Notre-Dame-des-Anges, a former converted lighthouse. There is of course in this gorgeous setting the natural moonlight sparkling on the sea and reflected onContinue reading “Hôtel Restaurant les Templiers Collioure France”

NEW BLOG Lunch with the locals at Le Chantier St Philibert Brittany France

I was reminded of an experience we had in Southern Ireland in Wicklow south of Dublin a few years earlier.
