We had the best of times recently holidaying in Cap-Breton (I really love the vibes in Hossegor & Cap-Breton). We did lots of sports, the girls had a ball skating, we ate healthily, slept well, caught up with friends and in the end, everyone had an amazing holiday and we all trimmed down. Less than 2 hours away from our holidays home, it’s an area we know well. We had planned a trip to San-Sebastian or Biarritz if the weather was bad but it turned out absolutely gorgeous for two weeks so no sightseeing for us but we did a lot of sports and a bit of shopping. If you are looking at visiting the area in the future, here are 10 of my favourite things to do in Cap-Breton & Hossegor. TAKE A 5-DAYS SURFING COURSE Steve, Mila and I had surfed before in Devon and Biscarosse but it was a new thing for Elodie and Lily and they both loved it. We did our course at the Cactus Surf School in Cap-Breton and I can’t recommend them enough, especially Clement …
A few people coming to stay in our holidays homes (this one for 6 people and this one for 8 people) have been asking me about places to eat and what to do with young children so here are my favourite spots to eat in the Bay of Arcachon and they are all child-friendly.
We always spent our holidays in France in this home which is now fully booked the whole Summer except the week from 22nd August but we also have this pretty house for 6 people near the Bay of Arcachon where I stayed for three months after giving birth to Mila.
In a few hours, I will be in a plane to New-Zealand with my little family. When we get there, we will celebrate Christmas the French way for Mila who expects Papa Noel to follow her with gifts wherever she goes (which is fair enough I guess) and then two days later, the Kiwi way at the beach. I leave you with this wonderful card from Therese Sennerholt and I’m taking this book about creative visualisation recommended by Nathalie Massenet, Founder of Net-a-Porter. From the bottom of my heart, I wish you all the most wonderful and relaxing Christmas with your family. Lots of love xoxo
