Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. We are so pleased you enjoyed yourselves and were able to visit some of the lovely villages in the area, it is certainly an undiscovered part of France. It does make a change in France where you will find many attractions, etc. free - even the parking at the seaside is free - a refreshing change. The children must have become water babies and it is good the weather picked up to the 30s - we normally have great weather in the region - so great you could feel some of it!! Thank you once again it is much appreciated.
