Britain Chapter One - Ti Al Lannec Resort
First Time I went to Britain, I was running away from Pressure and Time.
First time I travelled to Britain was in 2014. I wasn't sure why i chose to go there, probably after my companion's advice. I was scrambled by my job at that time, under a lot of pressure and Parisian life was kind of strangling me. Since i come from the Mediterranean sea, I never had the chance to see the low tide.
Britain is Magical. It's not only the sea, that seem to hide hundreds of untold stories. Not the sky, alive and breathing through wind, rain and thunders, melting and constantly changing in all shades of blues and grays. It's not only the Nature ... quiet, vivid, fresh, resisting all kinds of storms. There's something it the inhabitants i told myself. Bretons learned to adapt to this magic. They learn to calm down the tide of the time that keeps bringing all away as we were mere grains of sand disappearing in the clouds.
I couldn't stop thinkhing while I was there that my Parisian life was somehow nonsense. That all that running and running was a society-imposed labyrinth that was turning me blind.
It was a sort of slavery: I missed Paris but at the same time i missed Nature, and calm, and silence. I had moments I realized that i was no longer capable to ... stand by myself without doing "nothing". It took me days and days to realize that this "nothing" was actually my incapacity to look around me without interfering. Meditate for example.
When Vincent told me "let's got into this hidden path" into a forest close to Ti Al Lannec... I was scared. "how many years?" I told myself "Do you even recall last time you did not walk on concrete???" Well a long time. It felt good finally but i really had the impression I was a real city zombie lost in the wilderness.
Where to Go: Ti Al Lannec
We really wanted a quiet, lovely and Romantic spot. We chose a 4**** Ti Al Lannec. They have a lovely view as you can see above, an amazing new generation pool (you are going to need it unless you can handle to swim into 12¤ Calvin degrees... well i could not!), a delicious restaurant and a SPA. Ti Al Lannec belongs to the Relais du Silence. Prices are fair, especially if you reserve during the low season.
The only thing is that it has an old style: we went there, we are 30, and we were the youngest people there. We were impressed to see a lot of old ladies and sirs (especially from the UK) enjoying their tea. It was funny (well, at least it was VERY quiet!). They have a salon so kitsch with cats and dogs embroideries on the pillows it seems to be in a Miss Marple episodes where the killer is the 95 years old lady who realised that she was jealous of her elder son's wife.
They have a very good SPA and amazing therapists. I really recommend the address should you wish to do any reflexology. Oh, and there's a Jacuzzi and Fitness center as well.
