La Romieu

Friday 13th June.

We have spent four very pleasant days at Le Camp de Florence despite the 90° plus heat.

The whole site seems to have a very relaxed and laid back feel which we felt as soon as we arrived. The staff are all extremely pleasant and seem to smile constantly, not something you always find, particularly in France. To Kate’s great disappointment the site restaurant was closed on Tuesday when we arrived so we had something from the snack bar, steak frites for me and fish and chips for Kate. The next evening we had an excellent meal on the terrace outside the restaurant. We have a couple of walks into the village of La Romieu, it is a hot, ancient and sleepy place and we sit on a shady seat in the beautifully restored village square and watch the world go by……not that there is a lot going by. And that is how the four days pass, a little walk, sit in the sun until the heat gets too much and we have to retreat inside, eating and sitting outside late into the evening enjoying the cooler air.
