We are lucky enough to find a small cottage built right on the sea for our family's annual summer escape. We slow down, eat delicious food, pick blackberries along country roads and wander cobble stone streets in historic towns. My father makes strong martini's and we play a lot of cribbage.
This is my home for three hot July days - where life feels like every summer book I ever read as a child. We can not wait to visit again.
