Our first night we spent in Folkestone so on the way we stopped at Chartwell-the home of Winston Churchill.Superb grounds and a wonderful house.
Eurotunnel.Tickets bought with our Tesco vouchers.
We stayed in Alencon on our second night away and had a lovely meal in this restaurant.
My Matilda shawl which I finished just before we went away(photo taken in the garden of the gite. Our gite which was in a small village about 20 minutes drive from La Rochelle.There was a boulangerie in the village which also sold basic foodstuffs.Very useful.The cottage had 2 bedrooms,essential as both c and I snore but it had the noisiest floorboards in the world.
