FRANCE and the ECLIPSE 1999
In August 1999 we went to France and stayed in a cottage at Gournay sur l'Aronde just north of Compiegne. The cottage, Relais de la Poste, was an old barn conversion, very large and very quiet, with the French owner living next door. It was a great place to relax after our three hectic days in Eurodisney !!
Here are some of our photographs:-
