Vite! To the Gite!


The Saturday morning at the hotel in Narbonne made us realise we didn’t want another couple of weeks camping or indeed staying in a hotel room.

So I googled gites de France, got about 5 listed and of those, we needed a swimming pool, but most had one or no photos, were expensive or were just a phone number.

One however was massive and had beautiful photos and rather expensive.

I rang on the off chance. This week apparently is end of season, and because the gite was so big, they could close off the top half of it and offered it to me at a reasonable price. And after only spending 10-20€ a night camping, it was the perfect result.


Kate mentioned it to her mum and after serious negotiations, they decided to fly out!

So here we are, in a renovated drapery factory in a massive gite, big family all together.

It’s fantastic!
