Never seen : MIRANDE happiness recipe
Choose very carefully, on the map of France, a very pretty hilly land, tucked away between Garona river and the Pyrenees Mountains, in the heart of Gascony.
Add a little bit of the picturesque patrimony, full of history and emotions.
Complete with the best adventure narratives of d'Artagnan, our Gascony hero.
Mix everything including green hills, sun and joy of living.
Prepare separately a package for relaxation and sport : don't forget the large lands for leisure and the wonderful hiking roads winding up to Saint-Jacques de Compostelle.
Finally, when everything is really homogeneous, warm it again according to the season, with a famous festival and some chords of a local folk.
Serve it hot with various sauces as tasty as its gastronomy.
Dress the meal with magrets, foie gras, croustades and tourteaux, it will be even better.
And with moderation , try some wine and armagnac !
Here you feel guests rather than merely tourists, discovering our deepest values, appreciating the conviviality and spirit offered by the local craftsman, the farmer, the shopkeeper...
Isn't it the key for happiness ?
