A story from the heart written by guests staying in
Le Fournil at Le Pas Cru over Christmas and New year 2023.
By entering the path we could already feel the cracking sound of the stones under our feet. The world was not coming with us. At first she hesitated but after opening the front door, she let us go.
And so Le Fournil became a place to shelter. A place where the days had no longer a name and where the time appeared to have time. A place where the day began after the darkness of the night. As it is supposed to be naturally, this became our rhythm.
Getting up at the dawn of the day and embrace the day as much as we could, and so we were able to experience and see a lot. Every day too, we were looking forward to go home, because that’s how it felt for awhile, Le Fournil appeared to be our home.
The place where the stove burnt and the food tasted so much better. The place where we learned to see each other again and where there was recognition when I looked in the mirror ‘There you are’ is what I thought ‘where have you been lately’.
Thank you. Tricia and Mark, for making it possible for us, and so many others to shelter for a while. To leave the world behind and find ourselves back again I cherish forever this place exists
