We Have News!
 

For 2014

Le Grebe and La Colombe have now been completely re-decorated

and as part of our desire to keep our gites as fully up-to-date as

possible, iPod/iPhone docking stations are in all 3 gites and Senseo

coffee makers added to the kitchen equipment.  New all-season

duvets and pillows are in all the bedrooms, including 4.5 tog, lightweight,

duvets specifically for the summer.

The large modern parasols and Weber barbecues which were added

to the external equipment in Le Grebe and Le Pluvier in 2013 proved

very popular and these have now also been added to the garden

equipment in La Colombe.

The children's play equipment and football goal-posts installed in the

field in 2013 are also being very well used.

All these changes are reflected in the new photos which appear in

this website.

Brittany Ferries

Since January 2014 we have been able to offer our guests the facility

to obtain a 20% discount on their crossings to France using Brittany Ferries. Please contact us for more details on this superb offer.

Le Nouveau Bulletin
Many of our guests have asked to be kept up-to-date with developments

at Les Petites Cigognes, so we publish our newsletter Le Nouveau

Bulletin annually.  As part of our website development we now include

the 2013 edition of Le Nouveau Bulletin as well as previous editions

on this page.

Garden Update

A major long-term project for has been to develop the gardens

and area behind the gites.  Planting in the gite gardens is quickly

maturing and the shrubs and hedging planted around the pool have

now firmly established themselves.

Altogether we have now planted 250 trees in 'The Triangle' field

in the last few years.  This has included hazel for coppicing, as

well as blackthorn, acer and hornbeam.  Despite the severe winters,

droughts and torrential rain, most of these saplings have survived. 

The woodland is at last beginning to look a bit more than a few

sticks in the ground!

Private Vineyard Visits and Local Wine Tastings
In partnership with the wine shop Le Dit-Vin in Descartes, we

can now offer guests private vineyard visits. Wine tastings have

always been very popular at Le Dit-Vin. No matter whether you

prefer white, red, rosé or sparkling, we can arrange a visit of

regional vineyards to suit your taste or a tasting at the shop.

These are by appointment only. 

For more information, please contact Sandra and Ian via e-mail or
by phoning   +33 (0) 2 47 59 54 99.
