Virginie – David review
Stayed in 2018
What a memorable week it was!
Enjoying perfect weather, eating succulent and generous local dishes prepared by Virginie, being treated as an important guest of a delightful family, strolling the streets and lanes of the local, better-than-typical Provincial village and visiting the remarkable hill-top villages of Les Baux and Gordes.
Intertwined with this was improving my ability to converse in French – after all, it had been with that hope that I had travelled all the way from Australia to France. There was the opportunity to converse in French at all three meals as well as during the major part of the rest of each day and Virginie’s skills as a teacher were outstanding – encouraging my confidence, correcting repeated errors and supplying vocabulary where it was lacking.
This wasn’t just a three-hour lesson – the whole day held the opportunity for learning.
And there was more. Virginie has great generosity of spirit. I received care and attention of a sort which I will remember forever and I am so pleased to know that I am now have a French family as special friends – Virginie and her husband Alex – and their children, Leo, Tom and Lilly. Nothing would please me more than to spend time with them again in the future.
