Although we’ve been back a couple of weeks, I’ve yet to show you the lovely pictures from our much needed family holiday.
We went to St Jean De Monts in France and had a fantastic two weeks of sun, sea and family fun. We sailed from Plymouth which is just down the road from us to Roscoff and then a five hour journey in the car. We took all our own advice on Travelling with Children and off we went.
This was the gorgeous house that we stayed in. It was in the perfect location with everything from the beach, restaurants and bars all a stones throw away. It was quite an anomaly in the area as most houses were all on one level so we got quite used to being stared at from passersby having a nose.
We’re quite a foody family and the restaurants were amazing and very child friendly even in the evenings. We tried all sorts from Moules and frites, Galettes (savoury pancakes) and Daddy tried Carpaccio of beef which he’d been eying up for days. I was a bit hesitant with the Galettes, but if you get a chance to have these then we highly recommend them. We were near a fantastic market which was open every day until lunch time selling everything (food wise) from fresh fish, meat, cheeses, fruit and an array of breads and pastries. The children got a bit used to the icecream which came in every flavour imaginable.
We visited some lovely places, but our favourite was the beach where we spent a lot of our days. The sand was gorgeous and the water was inviting and warm.
It’s a shame that we had to come back home, but we will see that sunset again. Maybe even next year!
