A friend Sylvia, from her sunny digs in the south of France, illlustrates with a photo of her toes the meaning of the French slang term "pénard." Tranquil, calm,  peaceful, comfortable, cushy.

Take note of the tidy stonework of the wall around the pool. It's en pierre sèche--stones layered without mortar-- a masonry technique typical of the countryside around the Gard provençal.
