We took over 500 pictures on our vacation in Wales and France, so I’m having a hard time deciding which ones to share with you! I thought I’d start with the gite that we stayed at near the Crozon Peninsula in France. It’s a beautiful 17th century house that sits on the banks of the Aulne estuary.
The kitchen was a huge gorgeous room with this heavy wooden table that seated ten. We had some lovely meals and a ton of laughs in this room. One of the things I loved most about our gite was that we could all gather together (there were 10 of us at one point) when we wanted to, but also spread out in the other large rooms when we needed some space.
This was my favorite room. It’s a sunroom that extends out of the back of the old stone house and it overlooks the estuary behind the land. See that soft orange chair in the corner? That was where I settled down every evening to read, write, and to watch the sun set over the sparkling water and lazy hills.
Our gite was nestled away in the trees on the left side of this photo. Stunning!!
I can definitely see more time at French gites in my family’s future.
