La Buissonnière provided an excellent inlay to many things French as well as providing a challenging training ground for my feet. I did not know any French, but it was not a problem; I actually learned quite a bit from the hosts. The food was more than my taste buds could handle while remaining simple and fresh at the same time. Michel is very knowledgeable about wine and was an excellent resource on this subject (grape types, rules for growing grapes in France, storage, etc.). In fact, the caves (wine cellars) in the area are lots of fun and full of character. Both Michel and Chantal were eager to answer any questions I had or just to have a relaxed conversation with me.
They also provided me with plenty of detailed maps of the area so I could go hiking and running on my own. The elevation is very good for training purposes or just for a challenge. I would always come back to the best bread (I still can't find anything like it in the U.S.). The scenery is divine and I still cannot get the rolling hills, the green leaves, and morning mist out of my head. All in all, it was an awesome experience for the money and I hope I can make it back some day.
