    Great!

    Make sure you see as much as you can, commensurate with an easy pace of life. French rural life, in particular, encourages you to relax.

    Find a pavement cafe and spend time just "people watching" as well as sight seeing.

    What's not to like?:)

    :dance2::dance2::sun: Thanks everyone. We're going to start in Normandy for a look at DDay beaches and then wander down to Brittany. Will be taking everyone's advice. Plenty of relaxation and going with the flow :smiley:
    We are very grateful to all our fellow funsters who have given us such good information which we have used to make our plans, it has made for a much more enjoyable time planning and we will definitely be more relaxed.
    Got the smilies back, been having probs since putting adblock on, going to take it off.:Grin::Grin::Grin::sun::sun::Grin::Grin::Grin:

    Will certainly be doing a lot of relaxing once I've got a bit of confidence driving a new van and using automatic gear box (a first for me) Will also do a fair bit of :wine:I suspect when the opportunity presents itself ::bigsmile:

    All you want in the EVENING! Don't take the chance to get caught by the Gendarmes with too much alcohol in! 1 full glass (not a big one) and you'll be positive! And your hols will be ruined!
