Focus on the Environment

Over the next few years, we would like to do more to help the environment. We accept we will always travel to go on holiday, and therefore asked ourselves what we could do to put something back.

We are currently developing a small wood in the triangular field behind the Grange. Sometime in the future we plan to install solar panels to heat the pool instead of electricity.

We spend the autumns concentrating on planting. In the autumn of 2009 we planted over 100 trees, added two large flower beds and many large shrubs. Since then the total number of trees planted has risen to nearer 250.  These planted areas now add a considerable amount to the ambience of Les Petites Cigognes as well as encouraging a wide variety of wildlife to develop on the site.  More trees and shrubs are planted annually.

Planting around the edges of the swimming pool is now complete. As these shrubs and plants mature you can still see the pool from the gites but the outloook is much improved. The gardens of the gites were re-designed in the spring of 2010 and the many shrubs planted in them are developing extremely well.  More planting is planned for autumn 2014 and spring 2015.
