Our objective for our next night stop was a favourite of ours, St Aubin du Cormier. The Park4night is right next to the lake and lovely and quiet.
Next morning was another early start for me as I was determined to get all my remaining tasks for the week completed before we set off for lunch. I managed to get within 10 minutes of finishing, and we then headed for Hede, to what had become one of our favourite restaurants, the unusually named “Le Genty Home”. The food is excellent, and the owner, Chantal, is an excellent “front of house”, with very enviable language skills as she converses like a native with the locals, as well as to Brits like us. Pretty impressive for a Dutch native, which tends to be the norm for all those we meet from that part of the world.
After indulging in a dessert wine, unusually I took the passenger seat as Sophie took the helm and we headed a few minutes up the road to Tinténiac. It was here that we cut our teeth in their campsite, Les Peupliers, in a caravan with our two girls about 12 years ago, and it was the springboard to actually buying a house in Brittany, as well as moving into the motorhome world. We sold our house after 7 excellent years, but have never stopped motorhoming, and have no intention of doing so.
So we find ourselves in Tinténiac’s lovely Canal-side aire. Although we regularly pass close to the town, the aire can be a bit too popular for us, as we don’t like too many neighbours, so this is another first for us. It ordinarily costs €3, but that is only between April and October, so we’ll be having another freebie here tonight. This should be the last night of our trip, and so far it appears that our boat will be sailing tomorrow night, which hopefully means that the sea conditions will not be as bad as previously anticipated.

I have enjoyed reading about your winter break, but sadly, all good things come to an end. We still have a few more months before we decide where we are going to settle: I am very keen on Asturias, Peter on south west France (Landes). Still, qué será, será…
Happy New Year. 🎉🎉🎉🎆🎆🎆
So you are looking to move abroad to live?
Yes. We much prefer the European lifestyle and weather and both our families are settled in the continent, Peter’s in southern France and mine in Galicia. We both speak Spanish, so I am biased.
All that makes perfect sense! I’d likely do the same in your shoes.
In our case, Jersey is our home and we have the ties of our family here, so are just thankful that we are only 1 hour 20 mins from France with all the continent has to offer in addition ‘on our doorstep’.
To get to milder weather over winter is something I’d like to achieve trying sometime when Michael gives the green light! 😉
