Wonderland in the South of France

I can just die here.
Deep in southwest France, Bordeaux to be precise, lies a sleepy little town called Les Pres d’Eugenie (named for Empress Eugenie de Montijo, the wife of Napoleon III) where one of France’s most celebrated chefs, Michel Guerard  decided back in the 1970′s that he and his wife would buy some property and an existing chateau, and create the perfect south of France experience.
The summer air drifts in bits of rosemary, thyme, rosebushes and lavender, all abundant in the various outhouses and gardens.
