A real mix of weather this week, with periods of sun, cloud, strong wind, and rain in all its forms – very much like a British summer. Our lovely guests didn’t mind, although coming from Wales may have something to do with it, and wore shorts and T-shirts pretty much all the time.

One of the good things about coming here on holiday is that you can always visit a cave, where it rains all the time. Or go wine tasting – I didn’t realise how many vineyards there are nearby until I saw the leaflet.

(OK, that’s two of the good things.)
