It's the best establishment in the area, boasting ocean views, sun-drenched days and Basque country living. It will be her refuge. Except Julia isn't the biggest fan of old people: 'Nothing looks more like an old person than another old person, a bit like babies or miniature poodles.... How will I tell them apart?'Little does Julia know that this place is home to far more than just stooped backs, pureed vegetables and incontinence pants. Behind its double doors lie broken hearts, lifelong secrets, a budding romance or two and an unflinching zest for life. And Raphaël, the grandson of the newest resident, isn't looking all bad, either...
