But we absolutely loved the house with its exotically Mediterranean garden and the cool, tranquil atmosphere of the farmhouse hidden among so many fruit orchards. The house was discreetly packed with all our favourite films and books and many we enjoyed for the first time during our visit. The beds and sofas were comfortable, the bathrooms elegant and the kitchen had as much in it as my own kitchen at home, if not more. The bikes were an added bonus and we loved exploring the Catalan town of Thuir and eating outside on still-warm late summer/early autumn evening. Amanda was most generous having supplied us with masses of information about beautiful beaches and places to visit through the Pyrenees and down towards Baynols and the Spanish Coast. What a beautiful place to live in and to visit.
