Beach, pool, eat, sleep, repeat.
In August, that long, hot holiday month; Sim, Clo, Seb and I spent a week in La Seyne sur Mer, on the Méditerranean coast. I can now well and truly tick ‘swim in the Méditerranean’ off my list-of-things-to-do-before-I-go-home ! La Seyne sur Mer, in any month other than July or August, is around four hours south of Lyon. Holiday traffic adds at least two hours to that trip.
Our apartment building had a gorgeous swimming pool, a friendly cat and was 5 minutes walk from la plage – perfect !
We did manage to do more than the title of this post suggests, including day trips to Toulon and l’Ile de Porquerolles, a 10 kilometre walk (in 35° heat :-P) and a stroll around St Mandrier to look at the Navy base and ships.
But really – all those things were organised around beach, pool, eat, sleep, repeat – as any good seaside holiday should be !
