Our first trip abroad for 7 years or so with our 3 children, 12 and 11 year old girls and 9 year old boy.
We wanted a bit of what we consider luxury, so it was a stop over in a hotel before getting a cabin on the night ferry to St Malo, arriving on a Saturday.
The owner Paula had provided us with excellent directions, however I was relying on the TomTom in the main.
Arriving at the house we were surprised at exactly how quiet and peaceful a location it was, it was about 100 yards from the quiet road, overlooked by a barn undergoing conversion (clearly by a couple who turned up presumably when time allowed and were never noisy) and one other house about 70 yards away behind some poplars and barely visible really.
The house looked very pleasant on the approach, and is over two floor set in to a banking.
When we got in there was a bottle of wine and a baguette with a welcome note on the work surface of the well appointed kitchen, with butter and milk in the fridge... Plus
