A girls weekend in Fayence, France

A photo diary of a weekend in the most beautifully French villa, Les Terraces, just outside Fayence with the most wonderful group of girls.

This was in fact a hen weekend but not as we know them…  Yes, there were games of pass the parcel and guess the knickers and an illuminating Mr & Mrs quiz but mostly this was a whole lot of lounging round that pool with endless cocktails and stories and inhaling big like a creeper every time I passed this wall of jasmine and barbecues and alfresco dining and making new friends and crying like a mama loser when I video called my baby (who even am I?) and fresh croissants every day and fully unashamedly embracing headbands and mentally planning the finer details of my early retirement to a villa in the South of France not unlike this one.

I think you can honestly say it has been an excellent weekend when you arrived with one friend and feel like you left with ten.  Bring on the wedding…

    What a beautiful place, and looks like a blissful and fun weekend.
    As an aside, this is the first time I’ve posted, but been following your blog for years – I’m also pregnant at the moment with my first baby and you, lady, are my inspiration! You always look AMAZING! If I can look half as good as you do less than a year after giving birth, I’ll be over the moon. X
