While visiting Brittany , during the Frenchies' 2010 European odyssey, I discovered this gorgeous little shop (thanks sis)... Papa Pique and Maman Coud (translates to Daddy stitches and Mummy sews) , and their products are now available online. The boutique sells a range of products which I immediately fell in love with...so much so that I often ask my sister to bring me few items when she visits.... Now you can be in the running to win two of their products!!
There is something about getting away for a few nights which is so refreshing. The Mornington Peninsula, just a short drive from Melbourne, is the ideal getaway spot for families.
It might be because I grew up on the coast, but I love being around the beach to re-charge, come summer or winter. The Frenchies try and make our way to the peninsula whenever we can for a quick break, but it can get rather expensive so am sharing details of a little gem*. Next time you are heading down to the peninsula why don't you stay at the Retro Beach Shack- AirBnb in Rye.
The seaside town of Rye is less than a 100km from Melbourne and is easily accessible via the freeway or the longer coastal drive. The seaside town has all the essentials for a weekend away and does not carry the price tag of Portsea and Sorrento.
