La Chatte Gitane (or The Gypsy Cat) was the name we chose for our cottage in France at the time. We chose it while on the road, moving house the first time round, from Ireland to France with 2 dogs and 7 cats in the car.
This blog began its insignificant life as a recipe book for friends and family who would ask me repeatedly for a recipe of this, that and the other.
Since then it has taken many different directions, like we did and like gypsies tend to do. Sometimes making a U-turn and revisiting familiar roads and taking a break when necessary.
You'll find recipes here, but also musings about the places we've called home, the gardens that we've established, not always successfully, the homes we've improved and the environments we've lived in. Currently, after yet another stint in Ireland, we're back in France @ Le Mas d'Ayen

Tuesday Morning

What a spectacular view we have (when the sky is clear), looking to the northeast from the house.
The mountain(s) in the middle are the Macgillycuddy Reeks which are the highest in Ireland. On the right is Mangerton Mountain. Both are situated in Killarney National Park.
In the front, nestled in it's own hills is our fab village of Sneem.

Just as spectacular on a glorious summer's day.
