Calais shopping trip Cite Europe Carrefour - 1

I have hankered after a proper look around the Cite Europe complex at Calais for a couple of years. Whenever I’ve been past, I’ve been short of time or cruelly taunted by French Sunday trading hours.

To make things worse, I’ve even stayed in hotels just across the road but not been able to convince my husband to delay our journey south in order for me to get my shopping fix.

So this weekend I was determined to put this right.

Eurocamp Loix Ile de Re holiday review

Eurocamp Review Mobile Home

L’Ile de Ré is a thin sliver of land off the west coast of France near La Rochelle. Accessible only by an expensive toll bridge, the island is a popular place for holiday makers as well as for Parisians, French celebrities and politicians to buy second homes.

Ré vie (translation: Ré life) is very close to rêvie, the French for “dream”. This is highly appropriate.
