What a different a week makes...

It was good to get out and about again yesterday and as we were checking out some friend's houses in Angles sur l'Anglin after the thaw, we stopped off at La Roche Posay for lunch. The Friday market was making a brave come-back with the pleasant weather change and it felt good to be walking about without having to think about underfoot. We chose to eat in 'Les Douves' a restaurant we had used and enjoyed before..

Inside it is a curious mix of themes and colours  - but it seems to work as on both visits we noticed that it seems to be a place where friends gather for lunch and a chat producing a good ambiance.They have a 2 course menu at 11 euro and a 3 course at 13euro. We had two, with a main of  wild boar stew (daube de sanglier) which we hadn't tried before plus a lovely desert of apple crumble and ice cream.

As we passed the racecourse at La Roche Posay we noticed they are on the ball with the early posting of this year's meetings - if you haven't tried it you should - you can bet on a good day out.
