it was the third day staying in our second sweet home in vendée and it was a beautiful day to visit my favourite place nearby: la rochelle.
beautiful castle, amazing port, street restaurants and a pile of fashion boutiques, not to mention the lovely beach – it’s just a wonderful place to be. i also won’t forget the amazing company – beloved family and a beloved friend.
a rather regular food ritual at christopher coutanceau where i had to deal with about 10 courses for myself – i don’t know how my children managed but they did! each one was beautiful – surprise, surprise for a michelin-star restaurant! we definitely were looked after really well there.
(scroll down to the end to get the idea of what you get for a menu dégustation – just don’t ask me to remember what they were! i only remember the lipstick coffee soufflé specially made for me 💋)
ending the day with moderate shopping some french brands we love while in france – scoring, amongst others, a current-season suede biker jacket by maje which was £200 cheaper than in the uk.
such fun, a day to remember indeed.
p.s. this is the third post from my 3 weeks in france.
