French Countryside & Coast with Derek & Faye

After a very relaxing journey, we arrived at our fantastic gite. We soon settled in and explored the vast grounds. Having done that, we drove into Montrieul for dinner. It was a good start to our holiday.

We had a wonderful week as the weather was warm and mainly sunny. We spent our days visiting some lovely places and picnicking wherever we could as the weather was perfect. BBQ’s, a dinner at home on the patio and restaurants helped keep us in the holiday mood throughout the week.

Our days included; a trip to Montrieul for a wander around the old walled town, off to Boulogne to see the sea life aquarium, visiting the old town of Boulogne, taking a steam train ride between St Valery & Le Crotoy and taking a horse and carriage ride, sightseeing around the beautiful countryside with stops at the chocolate factory, resting by the river, seaside towns of Le Touquet and Hardelot and going underground in the city of Naours!

As always an ice cream or two helped confirm the holiday spirit. It was a very enjoyable holiday and all helped to make it special.
