A lovely week away!!

We have loved our week here. The house is amazing and the pool has been used lots by our daughter.
We have visited:

- The boulangeries – amazing cakes & pastries

- Puy du Fou – really great day out for all the family. Make a day of it – we stayed until 7.30pm and could have stayed even longer!
- Had a wander around Fontenay le Comte – nice little town with a fab boulangeries.
A great family holiday for us all. We hope to return!
Molly (8) – Puy du Fou was a lot of fun. There were a lot of amazing shows. The coliseum was my favourite. There were a lot of dangerous animals there – there were lions, tigers, bulls and leopards
