Hi, I am sorry it has been so long since I have last posted. The first week of the Easter holidays we went to France for a few days. It was just for a few days, because my hassled husband took us all to France a day late. He mixed up the dates of our booking and I missed out on visiting Paris. The kids had a great time, swimming, eating and visiting Disneyland Paris so I cannot be too cross.
We always book the Premier Inn at the ferry port to start our holiday with an evening meal and cooked breakfast before travelling on and this holiday was no different.
As you can see the view from our bedroom was different. The ferry was on time and we travelled to the campsite quite quickly, until we hit a big diversion in a village just outside La Croix Du Vieux Pont. I later found out it was a French Brocante fair so I wish we had stopped. Instead we argued with EMILY our sat nav and eventually arrived at our caravan.
We have been at this campsite before and it is great for families old and young. We like the countryside and walks, our children now they are young adults like to sleep, swim, eat and generally enjoy the facilities. They even talked me into bowling one evening which was hilarious as I cannot hit the skittles.
The shops are not far away from the campsite and the local villagers are very friendly.
In the middle of our few days away my husband asked if he could go to ‘Merlins Castle’, I love walking so I went with him. The children stopped behind and had a morning to themselves.
It is different from Warwick castle which is near to where we live in England, it is so detailed and very beautiful.
The castle was fun and we finished with a cake and a coffee at a tiny café in the local town. The baker was very patience with my O’level French. I love France and I will definitely be going back soon. I am booking the next holiday. Have a great week ………….
