My youngest brother, Italian wife and daughter live in Italy and I don't have the chance to see them as often as I would like. But spring of 2011 found me in France and they graciously offered to join me. A quick visit to the internet found Domaine de Cure. We arrived in the late afternoon on a hot May day. The drive from Italy was ten hours and my nine year old niece could not get into the pool fast enough! We had a full, leisurely week to enjoy a balance of quiet time at the gite and visits to the surrounding attractions. Our unit was beautifully decorated with full amenities and a kitchen ready for hungry cooks. The location is perfect; close enough to venture out each day but secluded enough to feel rural. Our hosts Jean-Noel and Agathe could not have been more inviting and gracious. They welcomed la petite and helped us keep her entertained as she was the only child. We had a glorious week and hope to return soon. For more of our visit and photos please check out my blog at www.eugeniakeegan.com.
