A summary of our Eurocamp Holiday in France

Holidays. The thought of them brings a smile to your face. Memories come flooding back from previous trips, and thoughts of what to do on your next break "away from it all" sets you off daydreaming. Reality... packing, planning, exhaustion and lots of washing afterwards. Is it worth it? Well, we wouldn't keep going on them if it wasn't would we?
 

Our latest holiday took us to St Gilles in Bènodet, France.  The car was fully loaded, games and toys piled up high on the back seat, phrase book handy, and the Sat Nav all hooked up.
We were soon in France meeting my Uncle and his partner for breakfast. The sudden realisation that I spoke not a single word of French soon hit me. Thanks school for only teaching me German and basic Spanish! J knew more French then me. Thankfully Daddy did A level French, and remembered some of it.
  
 
We made the 120 miles trek through Brittany driving on the wrong side of the road down to the coast. Stopping only for a bite to eat in a little village called Quintin where the girlies fell in love with the patisseries. 
 
The 2nd day we were greeted by rain. The board games came out, and we had quality family time. No phone, no TV and no contact with the outside world, confined to the walls of our Avant caravan.
 
 
The diet was off for a week whilst we enjoyed all that France had to offer. I really wanted to try out frogs legs, but didn't see it once where we were... maybe its a Paris thing? Or just a stereotype? Instead we tried out lots of cakes, crepes and cold meats, cheeses and French Baguettes of course...
 
 
 J attempted to learn to ride a bike in the kids activities, as well as getting stuck in with Tumble Tots too; these were all include in the park facilities.


J almost learnt how to ride a bike, she quickly passed the balance bike part, and was soon on the pedal learning. This meant no stabilisers. The only thing keeping her back was her self belief. Jo, the lovely Kids courier tried over and over again but every time J felt her hand leave, her foot would come down. She did it over and over again. They let us borrow the bike until the next morning session so J could get more practise. J proved she could do it, but it stressed her out, with full on tears, so we decided to not do the daily lessons as it was her holiday too.

 
 We also went off site lots too. We visited Quimper, Locronan, and Concarneau.


A mandatory visit to the beach which was on our door step, made a lovely birthday treat for me.

 
If you ask the girls what their favourite part of the holiday was, the answer would be the swimming pool and disco.

 
We managed to cram so much into our 7 days, the pool was visited almost every day and we did get so many more memories to cherish. S even got her first boyfriend, they danced, held hands and cuddled, it was super cute! The weather was warmer than back home, and we only had a little rain whilst there. I'm certain it wont be our last trip to France or Eurocamp.
 
This is just a round up post, so will go in to much more detail soon.

  8. Sounds like you made the best use of all on offer. Lovely that they had a bike facility with lessons. No way you can diet on a holiday in France. Too much yummy food. #CountryKids
