We have a French saying: “Après la pluie, le beau temps” that means ‘After the rain comes the fine weather’. This was particularly true today on a walking tour of Maisons-Laffitte with our friends from Sydney, Australia. This morning we met up with Denis and Felicity in our residential suburb under a generous warm sun!
And we came back to the centre of Maisons-Laffitte and ate at a restaurant called ‘Les Cocottes de chez Blanchet‘. It is so nice to be served fresh food prepared on site and I can only recommend it on your visit to Maisons-Laffitte.
