Love where you live – Veules-les-Roses

Part of raising a multilingual, multicultural family for us is learning to love where we live and transmitting that curiosity and love to our children. National holidays are the perfect time for a little family get-away, even if the weather is not at its best! Last Monday was Labor Day here in France and rather than stay cooped up inside because of the gloomy rain, we got all 4 kids plus a friend in the car and drove an hour towards the coast where we were able to see France’s shortest river, just over a kilometer long! From the natural spring to the crisp river full of fresh water and out into the vast ocean, Veules-les-Roses is filled with quaint homes and plush and pretty gardens. No wonder all the impressionist painters congregated in Normandy!

    Beautiful pics! I’ve never been to Veules-les-Roses but now I want to go! #allaboutfrance

  2. Stunning photos Maria, the last one looks like an Impressionist painting. Thanks for linking up with #AllAboutFrance

  3. Lovely photos, Normandy is so beautiful, but I have only been there a few times.

    You were right to get out last weekend despite the weather — I’m afraid I basically holed up, it was awful down here in Aveyron — raining all day Friday and a huge thunderstorm on Sunday! This weekend was much nicer.

    I remember, though, that with young children, getting out somewhere was a necessity no matter what the weather!

  5. Beautiful photos! I haven’t been to Normandy for years, but I do remember how pretty it was. And how wet, too! You’re right though, it’s far better to head out and find something interesting to see or do rather than stay cooped up indoors.

  6. These pictures are like postcard! Stunning view! I am so mesmerize by them! #myexpatfamily

  11. That last picture should be in a gallery, it’s gorgeous. And I agree we should learn to love where we live, wherever it is. Everywhere has SOME redeeming features 😉
