Here, the men wore three quarter trousers and socks with sandals…and we aren’t referring to the hipster Birkenstock and socks look that still continues to find its way into most collections worldwide. The women were also somehow pattern-crazy, but not in the good sense. The locals chose simple looks and jeans proved a firm staple here.
On another note, we did manage to find two culinary highlights during our stay. Villandry, a tucked away spot where we were treated to salmon and a most exquisite swordfish. On Saturday night we tried Genuss Atelier, also tucked away, this time with arched beams in a basement. The food was astounding, where creative salads, guinea fowl, stuffed veal with spinach and even gin distilled in Dresden proved sure winners. Thank you to the wonderful staff that spoilt us at both locations with excellent, laid back service.
