Bonsoir de Luchon – “Reine des Pyrénées”! – pyrénez-vous!:-)

Luchon, pittoresque station thermale est à 1h 1/2 de Toulouse, aux pieds des Pyrénées, dans une magnifique vallée, “doublée” d’une station de ski – Luchon-Superbagnères sur la frontière franco- espagnole. Je recommande un super-resto “les Caprices d’Étigny”, un excellent rapport qualité-prix, pour 20 euros: tapenade d’olives noires aillées et un verre d’apéro à l’armagnac, la truite pyrénéenne marinée aux girolles, “rumsteak” grillé au feu de bois avec ses petits légumes, dessert au lait de coco, mangue et fruits rouges, le tout avec un vin rouge local… santé et une semaine formidable! 🙂

Good evening from Luchon – ‘Queen of the Pyrenees’! – get Pyrenean, too! 🙂   

Luchon is a picturesque spa, 1h 1/2-drive from Toulouse, situated at the foot of the Pyrenees, in a beautiful valley, ‘dubbed’ by a ski resort Luchon-Superbagnères on the French-Spanish border. I recommend a delicious restaurant “Les Caprices d’Étigny” – an excellent value for 20 euros: black olive ‘tapenade’ with garlic and a glass of ‘Armagnac’, marinated Pyrenean trout with chanterelle mushrooms, rump steak grilled over a wood fire with tiny vegetables(eggplant and 3 kinds of peppers), coconut-mango-red berry pudding – all served with a local red wine… cheers and have a splendid week, guys! 🙂 more here: http://uk.luchon.com/

  1. Though Europe’s large cities are each wonderful, the real beauty of each country can be found in the little villages that dot the countryside. You took us to one such spot today, Melanie, and we shared a delicious meal.

  2. Am salivat instant la poza cu friptura aceea! 🙂

  3. Accompagnato dalle belle immagini, ti auguro una serana settimana.

  4. Deci ai făcut poze din telescaun şi ai surprins pe peliculă acel peisaj panoramic superb. Sper ca într-o zi pe telescaunul din spatele tău să fiu eu şi să-ţi strig:”Melanie, cât este de frumos!” Şi bietul urs! A fost vrăjitoarea cea rea, a suflat deasupra lui şi l-a făcut stană de piatră, dar precis că atingerea ta a înlăturat vraja şi noaptea redevine urs adevărat şi pleacă de pe soclu prin păduri unde zburdă în voie, iar ziua revine fiindcă s-a obişnuit să facă poze cu turiştii! Am zis “Mmmmm” la deliciile din farfurii şi-am simţit puternice averse de ploaie în gură! Îmi imaginez că a fost din nou o mini-vacanţă de vis!

    • 😉 pai Rory, doar la o ora juma’ de Toulouse, nu-i si “pacat” sa nu profit de-o “parcela” din cele 3 lanturi pireneene?!… ai o imaginatie vasta, bogata, zburdalnica-rau… 🙂 gastronomia locala franceza-i simpla, asa ca ce-ai vazut în farfurii e usor de “realizat” oriunde, cu produse de calitate… multumesc pentru vizita si-o seara placuta! 🙂

  5. Ciao, Melanie. Ben trovata. Spero tu stia bene. A presto. Osv.

  6. Yumm Yum Miss Melanie!!! I wish we could have lunch some time! 🙂 Cheers!!! xoxo

  7. A beautiful ski resort, Melanie, and very beautiful part of the Pyrennees. Ana remembers living in Andorra la Vella and she says it’s a beautiful area. One day I may see it. Regards, Ian

    • Luchon is only a spa, the ski resort is 20kms up @ Superbagnères… 🙂 you did tell me about Ana, I know Andorra very well: it’s 170kms away from here, we go there all year long… 🙂

  8. Mmm, m-ai transformat pentru câteva clipe într-un cățel privind un os cu carne! 😆

  9. Mon appétit est intéressé par votre menu… 😉

  10. Looks like a great place to be. 🙂

  11. Yam! Yam! De la bonne truite… santé également et agréable semaine toute entière!

  12. Delicious post, dear Melanie! The way you display the dishes through the sliding photos and your descriptions are so tempting! I’d love to experience everything! I’m already drooling… Have a brilliant and creative new week! Doda 🙂 xxx

  13. I liked your pic with the teddy bear. 🙂

  14. Have a great start in your week! Take care, Melanie! 🙂
