What a find this is! Probably the best France Passion site we’ve been to so far, and they’ve all been pretty good. There are 4 pitches with electricity divided by hedges, water and wifi provided for free. There’s also a hut with a fridge where they sell their various Burgundy wines from and buyers can leave their money in an envelope with their names, emails, etc written on it, which, of course, we have done. Don’t you just love this kind of trust?

We have bought one bottle of Meursault and one of Bourgogne Rouge 2007, which we have already enjoyed for lunch and we really loved the lightness and subtlety of flavour. We are saving the Meursault for Adonis’s birthday on Wednesday.

It’s been very hot today (35 °C in the motorhome in the shade), so we have spent a lot of time in the ‘cooler’ visitors’ hut using the free wifi service and the large table provided. We have also taken advantage of the hose provided to enjoy a couple of much needed cold showers: a real luxury.

There is even a barbecue available and we are tempted to use it for our Frankfurters tonight! What else do you need?

This is definitely a place to come back to and no doubt we will!
