I believe I have peaked. Plan de la Tour and the villa we are going to be living in for the next 7 days are idyllic. If there is a paradise, this is it. Peaceful, warm and serene, and with a tepid, soothing horizon pool. I don’t think we will move from here for the next week. We loaded up with provisions from the local Carrefour (supermarket) in St Maxime and we will live by the pool reading, swimming and drinking wine all day, every day.
We left La Ciotat behind after watching Justin and the Canterbury Red Devils win the National Senior Club Championship against the Southern Stampede in Queenstown. The game was streamed live and was very tense. Drawn 5-5 after full time, 5 minutes overtime was played with no further score. Canterbury took the goal shootout 2-0. Well done Justin and the team.
Plan de la Tour is a beautiful village. We stopped for lunch when we arrived. Our villa has more than met our expectations. It’s up a valley and up the hill. The house is surrounded by olive groves and fig trees. It is immaculately landscaped and set up for relaxation with no neighbours in sight.
I have posted a few pics from our first few hours here. We have just been watching todays stage of the Vuelta a España on TV. Go Contador.
Again well done the Devils.
