Our Brittany holiday cottage with private heated swimming pool and gym near Baud

At our Brittany holiday cottage with private heated swimming pool and gym near Baud yesterday our final guest of the season with the pool open departed so James and I took the opportunity of no guest present and a glorious day to dig up the boule court to expand the lawn area.


We are contemplating with the larger lawn to provide guest the opportunity to play croquet in the garden as an alternative to ' Boule'.

In a day the boule court was dug over, racked flat, new top soil added and grass seed sown - we now have 4 weeks before the next guest arrive and I'm sure by then the area will be all grass.


La Forge is available to rent all year where as La Veille Maison is available from the end of may through to the start of September.

Just 25 minutes from our Brittany holiday cottage with private heated swimming pool and gym near Baud is the medieval town of Vannes.

As an afternoon treat for young James we decided to enjoy the butterfly gardens located on the outskirts of the town. https://youtu.be/KNgO20VYckY

Our Brittany holiday cottage with private heated swimming pool and gym near Baud

As we arrive soon at the end of the pool season at our Brittany holiday cottage with private heated swimming pool and gym at the end of September. I am amazed no one has beaten my under water challenge yet of swimming 7 lengths with a single breath.  

In fact no one has beaten my daughters record either of 3 lengths for anyone under 15 years of age even though she was only 9 when she set the record.

The video below captures me doing 6 1/2 lengths - the 7 is a very special day and I have not been lucky enough to capture it on camera.



The best a guest has done to date was we had a 19 year old boy swim the same as in the above video.

In March at our Brittany holiday cottage with private heated swimming pool and gym near Baud we open the pool ready for the arrival of our first guest.

Some 5 years ago Naomi enjoyed her first trip too France and I managed to persuade her to jump in the pool without testing the water - it was only 8 degrees. (for a laugh have a look at the video)
