Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review.

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!!
