The South of France

Our first holiday of the summer was to the South of France. We got the train from Soignies to Brussels and then our fast TGV to Beziers. It took 6.5 hours to get there and was very relaxing. We'd taken a picnic and a bottle of wine to enjoy on the train.
When we got off in Beziers we had to wait a while for a taxi but we didn't mind a bit as it was lovely and hot. We got to our Eurocamp, on the coast. It was a 15 min ride from the train station. Our caravan wasn't ready so we left our bags and headed off to find a place to eat. There was a restaurant right outside the gate of the camp so that's where we ended up! It was great and after a good meal we went back to get the keys and be shown to our home for the week.
It had air conditioning, thankfully, as it was a hot week! The camp itself was quite big, there were two pools, two water slides, two kids clubs, a variety of playgrounds, tennis courts and of course the sea!
Abi enjoyed both kids clubs, Jacob wasn't as bothered. They both loved the sea and went in loads - way too cold for me. We ate out every night and thoroughly enjoyed a very relaxing week. The weather was perfect and we returned looking nice and heathy. I'd recommend using the train and I'm sure, if we go to the South again, we'll travel by rail.
