Holiday Memories from France

| October 20, 2012

Winter’s approaching so I’ve found some photos to share with plenty of sunshine. Just looking back over these photographs evokes happy memories of sunny days.

In May this year we spent a week’s holiday in Brittany, France. It’s one of our favourite holiday destinations.

What do I love about Brittany? The slower pace of life, the friendly people, the stunning scenery, the local markets, French wine and the focus that’s placed on the importance of family.

Here are some of the amazing memories we have of Brittany’s beautiful environment and the fun we had together as a family.

Spring Sunshine in Brittany

| May 31, 2012

We’ve just returned from a wonderful week’s holiday in Brittany, France. Our time was spent indulging in sun, sea, fresh air, country walks and the simple things in life.

We visited Les Rosaires, a beautiful beach on the North Coast which felt like an undiscovered piece of paradise.

Lac de Guerlédan in Central Brittany is a large man-made lake with several sandy beaches surrounded by forests and many marked paths for walking, cycling and horse riding.

Our daughter loved the gentle waves of the sea and fresh lake water on her toes.

The Nantes-Brest Canal was picturesque in the morning sunlight as we strolled along with our baby asleep in her pushchair.

Baguettes, cheese and tomatoes from the local market were devoured in the garden to a background chorus of birds singing. Sharing such simple pleasures with our baby made our first overseas holiday one that we will always treasure. We were truly a world away from central London.
