On an extremely hot day the option was to start taking up the carpet on our long corridor floor that leads past the bedrooms and bathroom to the veranda at the back of the property or to go to lunch at Le the Vert for a treat. Lunch it was, the corridor renovation can wait a while longer.
Le Thé Vert is one of our favourite places to eat in the Perigord and it is only a five minute walk from our home. It is run to a very high standard by friend’s of ours Judith and Paul. It has that home from home feel about it due to the friendliness of the proprietress.
You can have English or French food, breakfast or lunch. If you do not want a full meal there are snacks, sandwiches, scones and cakes all served with fruit juice, tea, coffee, beer or wine.
Special evening meals are organised regularly, for example ‘curry night’ or ‘fish and chip night’, (main course supplied by the excellent Dordogne Chippy). These soirée’s are always well attended so you’ll need to make a reservation in advance at Le Thé Vert.
Le Thé Vert to be found just by the bridge going into Daglan. To discover the full menu visit http://lethevert.fr/
Paul and I both picked the tomato and Brie baguette with a side salad and crisps. With a pot of Yorkshire tea, delicious.
We sat on the terrace shaded by a canopy out of the sun.
Turn your head right and you see the forest which was alive with the sounds of birds and cicada’s and the various homes which are dotted about along the long winding road.
To the left is the bridge over the Céou River which finished the idyllic scene.
Judith and Paul’s pool looks gorgeous, the sight of water always makes you feel cooler and more relaxed. You can have use of the pool if you buy the property, yes sadly it is up for sale. The couple will be missed a great deal. So if you are looking for a good business in a prime location this is it.
Well no renovation work today but we did enjoy our lunch and we got to meet a couple and their dog who are having a holiday in the area. So we chatted while eating our lunch and introduced them to interesting places that they can visit while here in the Perigord.
Totally relaxed we walked home, so relaxed in fact that no work was completed. Start tomorrow!… maybe…
