Have just spent a beautiful, peaceful week at Domain Sicard, a lovely gite owned by the most delightful couple. Ironically our weather was better in the UK but it didn't matter. Martine and Wout have developed their garden little by little from scratch so that it has areas of planting which gradually blend into the surrounding counrtyside. The most magical thing for me is a path which winds up the hill behind the house, carefully strimmed into the grass to guide you but not interfere with the environment, to a little bench with wonderful views over the surrounding hills. This is also about the only point you can get a telephone signal!
