Many guests come for several days and want to sit around, talk, relax (and not overspend on eating out)!
So, what's the solution when we have so many possibilities. Buy salads, meats and such at the supermarkets in Dormans (Carrefour, and discounters Simply and Aldi), bring it home and have a picnic. In good weather the deck up on the hillside overlooking the valley is great, or another deck with big hammock for two halfway up the hill is available. If rain or cold threatens use the glassed-in conservatory.
We provide a fridge/freezer for guests. Usually it contains a few bottles of chilled champagne.
Did I cover it all? We want our guests to enjoy themselves.
