    I'm glad you had a good time. How was DLP? Did you enjoy it?

    Love your photos!
    I have a great Uncle buried in a WWI cemetery in France, although I don't remember which one without checking...

    So? Do you have any more photos? I love France and would really like to go one day. :yes:

    love camping holidays in France, we did the Vendee last year, it's a bit of a drive. Which site did you stay on? we were at St Julien des Landes- a smaller quiet one :)

    Le clarys plage
    It was very busy and quite large great for the 6 days we were there
    It had everything great pool complex restaurants within a couple of minutes walk a large supermarket and a beach but it was nice to move on for a bit of culture and 'proper France' in Normandy Loire and Paris x

    it's the second time we've been Sarah- time before was when the kids were 2 and 6. it really is quite relaxing, we booked ourselves last year directly with the campsite- it cost half the amount eurocamp wanted. Accommodation is more basic but spotlessly clean. I used my tesco vouchers to buy the eurotunnel tickets too. I seem to remember it was about £500 for a week in August. I liked walking and getting my bread in the morning from the bakers just outside the campsite. There is also a go ape type thing on site - looks like fun but we didn't get around to it - if you want any more info just give me a shout :)

    Thank you
    Might look into booking a different way
    We always book with our travel agent, friends we met on holiday said they booked through Brittany ferries and it cost them half what they usually pay through eurocamp. Will look into these. Definitely be staying at the campsite you stayed at, it looks lovely. There was nothing wrong with le clarys plage, it was just too lively and not very 'French' if you know what I mean. Xx
