a visit to the french coast perhaps?








Last night while looking for a website for my favorite place that we stayed on our French driving holiday through Normandy and Bretagne five years ago, I came across Ma Maison de Mer.  I definitely think that we need to venture further down the coast this time, as it looks absolutely delightful!  I have only been to Bordeaux once, and it was in the winter, but it was still quite lovely.  Ma Maison de Mer is only 120 km north of Bordeaux and it would make for a lovely coastal driving holiday, don't you agree?



On our trip for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of D-Day, we stayed at Chateau du Val in Bretagne.  I absolutely loved it (although we were there in June and my french teacher tells me the weather in Bretagne is the same as Seattle - merde!).  We fell in love with their little girl, child number 6 for them (they had three of each) and we credit them with our #4...  

The property is spectacular and the surrounding countryside is absolutely beautiful.
