Happy Birthday Weekend

It was my Birthday on Sunday and our 4th anniversary on Monday. 
We usually go away for this weekend but this year did things a bit differently. Lex booked it all as surprise! I knew what days we where going but had no clue where until we arrived at the airport, he managed to keep it surprise all the way until boarding the plane, clever boy that he is.

I guess you are wondering where we went.......

Well we flew to Nice, France and then grab a hire car and drove to a small village called Tourrettes sur Loup. We stayed at the most wonderful place called La Residence du Moulin which I would highly recommend if you are looking for a quite and relaxing time, it was perfect. 

We both love the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region of France and have been before so we returned to a few favourite places and explored some new ones.

Here's a little selection of the things we got up to.....

Here's the view from our villa!

 We took a boat from Cannes to 
Isla Santa Margarita

Of course we had to do a bit of wine tasting!



 We managed to bring a few bottles home 
with us for special occasions

    That was a very nice surprise! The photos are just beautiful and make me want to jump in the water or the pool or sit and admire the view. Looks like you both had a wonderful time. Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday!
