A few steps on the right of previous pic, the view from the terrace. The view from the side. The place we read most of the time. The view from the back. We have the neighbours on the left, some more land on the right. I just love that view. Le debordement. The sound of the water goi g over the wall is so soothing.
There we reach the far end. We refurbished a garden shed that became a lift for younger ones. Away from us. The left side of the terrace, with the roman road, that i created myself with the stones of the old terrace. Very handy to go to the neighbours. The view towards the same neighbours, from the window of the bathroom. The window, with Eragon. Yes the cats come with us.
The beach is quite nice and the view towards cape Lardier superb. The sand is fake though. The beach is one of pebbles and some gritty sand. Each yearl hundreds of tons of sand are brought for the comfort of the tourists.
I was wondering about the boars too. I would be apprehensive at best in encouraging them to roam around and as BJD said, the adults can be vicious and attack when you least expect it.
Is that your dog in the background of one of those pics?
Thanks for sharing this with us whatagain.
I'm not envious at all.
Having grown up in a resort area we were always anxious for the high season (usually all of August on through to the first week of September) to end so we could reclaim our beaches, roads, and shopping for groceries. Long, long lines of traffic, rude people, maddening.
So, what's it like in the "off season" whatagain when the tourists leave?

We also live in a resort and I am waiting until September when the tourists leave and I can go to the supermarket in peace, walk around without getting run down by cyclists who ride once a year on vacation.
This is so beautiful and interesting, Whatagain! What great fortune to have that wonderful retreat to visit. It must be hard to leave it when it's time to go back to the real world. The fact that you have local shopping and a beach nearby makes it just about perfect.
I'm fascinated by the wild pigs and can certainly understand the thrill of having undomesticated creatures visiting your home ground. How do the cats react when the pigs are there? It's hard not to be attracted to something that looks more like a painting in a prehistoric cave than an animal of modern times.
We don't see the adults anywhere. Last year we saw a mother and, well yes, i was not that happy when i heard it do some grunting ... Tge priblem us that they are everywhere since 2 years, nobody does anything and when you ask they say to call the hunters.
So, since they spent most of june, all of july at home, we figure they can stay some more time.
The half monk... was one of the most religious man I've ever met. Talking about God, faith all the time. And also very nice and fun.
Hecsaid several times he would have loved to live in a monastery close by. He certainly could live frugally. So i called him affectionately the monk.
But at the same he was a man attracted by women. Upon his death, his son of a family of 4 brethrens discovered they had 6 more half brothers and sisters. Since then i reduced him to half a monk 😁
You have a beautiful place to escape to Whatagain. When you are not there, who takes care of the property? I know the pool has to be swept and brushed etc. I see you have the heat cover for winter. Are you never bothered by intruders? There seems to be no place on earth that one can feel safe, but your house looks as if it is a little off the beaten track and so quite OK. About those piggies. Maybe a good idea to give them a water trough so easy to drink from. Our pool has Egyptian geese swimming every morning and luckily they hop in and out quite easily!
