Nothing beats a carefree summer getaway, especially one that's filled with family, fun, romance, and every kind of shelly creature you can imagine! Lolo and I began our adventure in Provence and ended it in Brittany. It wasn't about the destination. It was all about the journey.
We put in hours and hours of work, shopping antique fairs and marche aux puces for days. But, we also wandered lavender fields in Avignon, strolled the promenade in Carnon-Plage, sipped cocktails by the pool in Orange, and admired the masters in Nantes. Lolo and I experienced the "real" France.
We wined and dined in sun-drenched towns and gray veiled villages. We meandered down gravel paths to discover hidden antique shops. We climbed step after step to see castle ruins and magnificent abbeys. We took the backroads and stumbled upon medieval villages and hilltop fortresses, rocky cliffs, and stunning beaches. We had dinner out on the town and fun and games after dark. We slept with the windows open. We were awed by the blue seas, green vineyards, white limestone cliffs, and pastel homes.
We hope Lolo's Carefree Summer Getaway through France will inspire you to take a journey of your own. Enjoy the adventure!
