The summer holidays are here and I've promised my offspring that I'll spend some time with each of them. At the beginning of July, I'm taking Hugo, my history-loving teenager, to follow in the footsteps of Richard the Lionheart at Saint-Rémy-sur-Creuse.

Yes, they're hungry, and that's what they've come for: to...

Along the water in Bonneuil-Matours

In September, I took advantage of the Indian summer to make Hugo's wish come true. After several kayak outings, my teenager had his eye on another water sports activity, stand-up paddle.
