Venice enchantment

Two weeks ago, the five of us spent three days in Venice. Although we’re big fans of Italy, we have long hesitated before choosing this touristic destination. But the magic worked : we completely fell in love with this city, adults and children! Venice has kept, despite the influx of tourists, its charm and authenticity. Perhaps this is due to the mix of grandiose and abandoned palaces, chic cafes and local bars, or the laundry carelessly hanging from windows .. This mix of glamor, history…

Sunny memories from Ile-de-Ré

Almost every Spring, we like spending holidays on Ré island (Charentes Maritimes, Atlantic Coast). This time of year is my favorite  there : flowering trees, fragrant wildflowers, pretty wisteria … The light is vivid and the sun can be sometimes quite hot. You can find pretty vegetables and fresh Spring herbs on farmers markets…Last but not least, there are rather few bikes compared to summertime, which is quite good, because ccycling could even be dangerous in August. In short, it’s really the perfect time to…

London stroll

London Stroll. During our last family journey in London, we took our time to enjoy this beautiful city. We know quite well the city, but once more, we were completely charmed by its lush parks, its flowery pretty house, its healthy and family friendly tea rooms and coffee shops. It was also the occasion for discovering lovely children shops… We had a special crush for the North London : Primrose Hill and Hampstead. We really loved  its huge parks, its lovely streets…

Fabulous family journey in Le Perche, Normandy

Fabulous family journey in Le Perche, Normandy. During our Autumn holidays, we made a family break not far from Paris, in Le Perche (Normandy).

One year !

Sweet Cabane's birthday - Sweet Cabane

One year ! Today, it’s Sweet Cabane’s birthday! It’s been a year since I’ve stated writing in this virtual place : to share recipes first, then findings and books we love… Nothing special at this very beginning! Then I wanted to integrate other parents ‘ “voices” through interviews about family life to know how other families manage their daily life. I think interviewing is a good way to share tips and good practices! A few weeks later, I started interviewing…
