That gîte in Vouvray

Here's another shot of the vacation rental we had in Vouvray. You might remember that we rented it twice; once in the fall of 2000 and again in the spring of 2001. The second time, I was able to watch the French Open tournament on television. Most of the time I listened while sitting outside in the beautiful weather we had.

This is where I sat, enjoyed local wine, and listened to the tennis tournament. Oh, and hung laundry out to dry. Digitized color slide, Spring 2001.

Right now I'm watching the men play in Miami. Next week they move on to the clay court season, most of which takes place here in Europe. That means little to no time difference and I won't have to record matches over night. And, as you know, the clay court season culminates with the French Open in Paris in late May. Ah, spring!


  1. What a great place to sit in the sun!

  2. I don’t know WHAT season we‘re having, but it looks nothing like spring. That gite is so inviting.

  3. I know of Vouvray from my wine courses. If I remember right they have lovely white wines.

  4. I have a very pleasant memory of that gîte. The new owner must be enjoying it.

  5. judy, :)

    bettyann, the weather made it.

    mitch, you're getting a lot more of the Sahara that we did.

    michael, yes, and they're also famous for sparkling wine.

    chm, we haven't driven by there in a long, long time. The last time we saw it, I noticed that they had done some kind of work up in the attic.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
