We needed a last minute easter holiday and decided to get in the car and go over the ferry again. We ventured further south this time to the pretty village of Bardigues, around halfway between Bordeaux and Toulouse.
Stopping in Nantes on the way. After hours of driving round we found a travel hotel (note to self to look up route and possible stops next time), and caught a tram into the town for dinner.

The kids loved Nantes which had an amazing collection of urban street art. The kids loved looking out for the mosaic space invaders by Invader and Where’s Wally graffiti.
We stayed here in Lavayssière, a boutique luxury 16th century upgraded Gascon manor, set in 30 acres of grounds, with two gites, indoor and outdoor swimming pool plus tennis courts.

The kids were so impressed with all the space complete with caravan and running deer.
There was one swing by the house.
And another down the path in the woods.
We attempted a spot of tennis.
And went pond fishing…
