A first birthday at Coin Perdu

Birthdays can be festive. Even in ruins. Or among the rubble. One only needs a sense of adventure. A sense of humor. A sunset and a candle.

So was our first birthday, having Marinell as the privileged member of the family to experience her birthday at Coin Perdu!

The day started off early morning with café liégeois and panini in Brive la Gaillarde and ended with a festive occasion on a beautiful hot summer’s evening at Coin Perdu, in front of the house, amidst the masonry… sunset and blue skies, good food and a smoky fire, special friends, candles and wine, laughter and jokes. The list of carnival can go on and on; from the nibblings on olives in cups around the fire to the gazing at stars in a dark and quiet expanse.
