La Terrasse Hotel Restaurant and the French cheese plate
I’m a California girl. I cannot speak a word of French; I speak English and Spanish. Yet it was at La Terrasse, in the village of Meyronne, where I learned the joys of the French cheese plate.
Upon checking into my room, #16, I caught up on my email messages. This olderer castle offers Wi-Fi. I then headed off to dinner at the hotel restaurant. It was at La Terrasse, dining on the patio; that I did fall in love with the French cheese plate. Not only did I eat ravioli of foie gras- a first for me-, I also sampled local soft cheeses produced in the Midi-Pyrenees region of Gers.
Sport Village of Meyronne
As I mentioned, La Terrasse was once a castle. There is no moat, but there is a swimming pool. My room looked onto the
River La Dordogne; kayaks and canoes were strewn across the grassy banks, begging for someone to take them out for a glide. Those who prefer horses to canoes should look into a multi-day horseback ride with Domaine de Garennes. In fact, I met five equestrians staying on the property about to leave for a jaunt in the countryside.
