Watch my new video and pretend you are THERE!!!
A happy renter just FaceBooked me today after arriving at the Cave Yuccas. “LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!” she said. She just ran the Medoc Marathon, which from her description sounded more like a 26 mile gorge-a-thon than a race! “The marathon was truly a once in a lifetime wonderful experience and I advise anyone the least bit adventurous to just do it… heavens-I did it, so that means many can…” Here’s a link to info about the marathon: http://www.marathondumedoc.com/
“Trôo has a number of British residents and figures in the poetry of Geoffrey Grigson, whose third and last marriage was to Jane Grigson, the writer on food and cookery. Their daughter is the cookery writer Sophie Grigson.”

Trôo was occupied by the English during the Plantagenet era. The old english spelling for “trou” (hole) is “troo”, thus the name Trôo.
Almost a year has passed since my last post, and I’m on my way back to Trôo for another glorious autumn. Highlights of my last trip in early summer were putting in the vegetable garden, hanging the hammock for the summer months, and of course, the Fete de la Musique on June 13 featuring 36 bands! I made a video of walking up to the cottage, which was an amazing day for the hollyhocks as you can see here.
So far everyone has enjoyed their stay at the Cave Yuccas enormously. It’s fun to read the guest reviews… makes me so happy to know I’ll be back to my home-away-from-home soon!
Here in Trôo it is a gorgeous autumn day. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and folks are sitting on the terrace at the Cave Yuccas enjoying their afternoon “goûter”. Not sure which season is the best here, but spring certainly has it’s charms. However, the tomatoes and grapes that are on the vine right now are so good that I’m tempted to say “Venez profiter de cette belle saison!”
Got a call today from Paris — a gentleman who read the article that appeared last month in Le Parisien wanted to book the cave bedroom for 2 nights. Let hope the trend continues.
