Grasse in the south of France was another great place that I enjoyed seeing last year. I always love to explore back streets and alley ways, some how they always offer you a far better feel for what the town is really like as opposed to the 'touristy' parts of towns and cities. I adore the ages patena of these buildings, the shutters in urgent need of repair and the cold draughty alley ways that (even on the warmest of days) can give you 'chills'. France really has some thing to offer every one.!! p.s.....sorry about deleting my previous post, I blogged using my iPad and I wasn't 100% happy with the result....!
