The renovations at Manoir de la Foulquetiere in the Loire Valley in France, which Ingrid and I photographed, are finally complete so I hope some of you will book to go and stay. It has been a real labour of love and is a magical place to stay. The swimming pool and gardens are lovely in summer and through autumn and winter you can cosy up by a roaring fire and enjoy Rosemary’s hospitality and a few glasses of the local vino after visiting local chateaux. What’s not to love? If you would like to book to stay at the Manoir you can do so here Manoir de la Foulquetiere. The bed and breakfast isn’t being advertised yet, but if you contact the Manoir they can book you in. It’s heavenly, believe me!
