Travel // Les Coteaux, Vienne, France…

It is no secret that I have an unending love affair with France.  Yes, the love is strong. Everything, the food, the hill top villages, the brocante, the weather – all.  In love.  So when my pal, Justine of Harp Cottage, asked us to stay in her place in France – I squealed with delight!

Travel // Nespresso at Cannes Festival…

There are many ‘stand-out’ moments in my blogging career, but nothing tops Cannes.  What a place, utterly magical, bonkers and beautiful in equal measures.  I was lucky to be invited by Nespresso to the Cannes Film Festival, to walk the red carpet and experience the glitz and glamour of this famous event.

Travel // Kayaking in Brittany…

We went on our first ever family holiday with Charlie about a decade ago.  He was less than 6 months old, and we’d only driven about 90 minutes to a camp site on the Gower peninsula in South Wales.  We celebrated finally getting him to sleep with a glass(es) of wine, and dreamed of the future.  It seems funny now, looking back at it, now that we have two boys.  A 10 year old and an energetic 8 year old.  We always expected them to

Travel // La Carr’air Cabin, Pont Aven, Brittany…

La Carr’air – the cabin in the trees. Part treehouse – part cool cabin.  Wooden clad with quirky features, this holiday let was a total treat from start to finish. ‘A treehouse’! exclaimed the boys excitedly. Yep! A house up there in the trees. What more could an 8 year old boy want? After spending a few days on the coast at Bot Conan Lodge, we had driven an hour further round the coast to Pont Aven, the other side

Travel // Discover Southern Finistere, Brittany…

This was my first visit to Brittany.  I had always thought of it as very ‘English’, ‘a bit like Cornwall’ everyone said to me.  And in parts that is true, rugged coastline, and great beaches – but at it’s heart Brittany is French, really French, and I love it for that. Brittany is made up of smaller ‘regions’, a bit like counties in a larger county. Finistere reaches from the English channel in the north, curves around and ends up

Travel // Bot Conan, Brittany with Canopy & Stars…

Bot Conan in Southern Finistere, Brittany, is a world of calm and beauty. We arrived late afternoon and were greeted by the owner Arnaud, who was keen to share his beautiful site with us.  Arnaud, has a series of fields that surround a stone farmhouse and barn, just a two minute walk from the beach – it couldn’t be any more ideal. In the fields, Arnaud, has constructed a series of safari tents which are designed on tents in which he

Travel // snapshots from our first few days in Brittany…

Wednesday, we took the last two days off school early, naughty but so worth it.  Drove to Plymouth and boarded a Brittany Ferry to Roscoff for a two week adventure in Brittany, Southern Finisterre.  With so much planned, the first few days were set to be wild and thrilling… but more on all of that later, for now here are a few ‘postcards’ from our first few days.  Just so you know we are ok, and mum you can see
