Meandering through the cobbled lanes lined with patisseries, to the sound of espresso cups clinking and the smell of freshly baked bread. La Trinite-Sur-Mer in Brittany encapsulates everything we love about France.
We would cycle into the village in the morning and join the snaking queue of local villagers on the flour dusted warm cobbles for our fresh bread and croissants to enjoy on the beach.
Post War Southern Brittany was re-built to become an urban retreat for the modern Parisian. As we breeze past you can’t help but imagine effortlessly chic French ladies opening the shutters of their opulent beach houses that peek through the pine forests that line the coastal paths.
Renowned for the fantastic sailing it offers; the backdrops of the towns are lined with tightly packed yacht masts reaching high up to the clouds. Beautiful Creperie’s overlooking the harbours offering fresh seafood and Crepe’s for the children to enjoy after a day of jumping in the sand and exploring rock pools. We would indulge ourselves before we would cycle home through the sunset, skin tight from the sea air and prepare for the following day full of the same. Perfect family summer time together.
