My family and I had visited France a few times staying in the usual touristy destinations, but we felt we’d never experienced “Real France” In the Pontardawe Festival, we were invited to join a group holiday with a difference to a small town in Brittany called Locmine. A few short months later, we boarded the coach in Pontardawe with lovely mix of people including families, students, and groups of friends young and old. After a relaxing night sleep in our cabin in the overnight ferry crossing, we completed our journey by coach to Locmine where we were met by our friendly French host families. It didn’t us into their home and made us feel like part of their family
We rejoined the group for a range of daily trips to explore Breton life, which of course included great food and fine wine. We visited the beautiful coast line, historic walled towns like Vannes and Lorient, local festivals and walks in the countryside. We also went to a fantastic museum which contained mechanised animals that you could ride including a 20 meter tall elephant! My 6 year old son, really enjoyed the activities, and was soon happily playing with the local children and spending time with our host family. Our hosts organised a final evening gathering for the whole group, with delicious food, live music, dancing and much toasting to our new good friends.
