You're Gonna Go Far, Kid!

You're Gonna Go Far, Kid!

I ve talked recently about a great family friendly outdoor activity near Sarlat, the Green Way Path: http://bit.ly/2nKzsqE where you can practice your favorite sport or just go for a gentle stroll. It made me wonder about young children and how far they can walk depending on their age.

According to BougerEnFamille.com, here's what you should expect from a child who is used to walk on regular basis :
3 years: 3 km
4 years: 4 km
5 years: 5 km
6 years: 7 km
8 years: 11 km

Don't forget to make plenty of time for breaks (for children under 12 years: 10 to 15mins every hour) and plan adequally since they reckon you need 50% extra time compared to adults.

Wherever we go, we always carry a First Aid kit and medicine like Arnica Montana 9ch, (homeopathic remedy for bruising) along with some hypoallergenic wipes (handy to clean hands and face) snacks like dried fruit, energy bars and juice boxes for our 9 year old daughter. Always be prepared!

And don't forget, you don't need to walk far for an ice cream if you're staying at l'Ancienne Ecole, our holiday accomodation near Bergerac. We're located right in the middle of an historic village and the square with cafés, restaurants, chemist, banks, shops… is only a few steps away.

A Star Is Born: Maxange Cave

A Star Is Born: Maxange Cave

From the World famous cave of Lascaux The Dordogne Valley has some of the most spectacular prehistoric cave art in the world.

I ve written before about some of them but today I d like to talk to you about one of the most recent cave discoveries and unique in the world for the shape of its concretions: Maxange Cave.

In Le Buisson de Cadouin, between Bergerac and Sarlat, the Maxange Cave have been discovered by accident by Angel Caballero while he was working in his quarry in 2000. The site became classified and opened to the public in 2003. With 30 000 visitors per year and 250 meters of illuminated gallery, it is smaller than its "sisters" but nevertheless not to be under estimated. True masterpiece of Mother Nature, it offers the magic of a display of eccentric concretions of 1,50 meters which is unique in the world. Like stars, they gave the cave the name of "Cave of the Stars".

And what makes this visit so unique is the fact that you get to talk to the founder of the cave itself, Angelo Caballero, since he will your guide!

You can catch a glimpse of Maxange Cave on this video: http://bit.ly/2nNqqWG

Bathing Beauty

Bathing Beauty

It's a well-known fact, swimming has a lot of health benefits: amongst them, I d mention: good to beat the stress, relieve pains for arthritis and arthroses sufferers while making joints stronger thanks to the low impact of the water, toning pain free your muscles making swimming a great workout for everybody.

And get this, according to the Fitness Magazine, it's a true fountain of youth since "It Turns Back the Clock" (http://bit.ly/1CS8jNY ).

But how about if you could add to this impressive list some beauty benefits to it? Easily done, if you swim in the salt water pool like the one we have at our rental home.

Swimming in a salt water pool is a unique experience. It'st easier on hair and skin than chlorinated water because it is not a chemically treated water. Salt water leaves skin and hair feeling soft and rejuvenated. And studies have shown that saltwater can help to heal a myriad of skin disorders ranging from eczema and psoriasis to acne.

So, do you want to try? Just get in touch with us!

And if you're looking for some brillant goggles for kids and adults, we're testing at the moment some great ones from Decathon: treated anti fog and anti-UV.
Amelia, 9 years old is in love with hers: http://bit.ly/2nHykQQ (Decathlon Spirit Nabaiji, size S) and Paul, my husband is happy with his (Spirit Nabaiji, size L) : http://bit.ly/2nqvqE4
