Simone and her family had just moved out and we were busy reorganising our space for five less people when Ren texted and said she had met Marco, from France and he needed a place to stay for the night…Mais Oui! Of course he must come, and so began a very entertaining evening. He arrived as I was picking a salad and he was intrigued with the richness of the garden as we walked around and taste tested the peppery nasturtiums and sweet tips from the broad beans and crinkly texture of the kale. We ate Salmon seared and sprinkled with dill with new potatoes and a large salad and a bottle or two later of wine we were surveying the castle in his home village on the internet.
Marco was lovely and what a fabulous evening shared. Of course we will visit Marco!
