This year will be my first Christmas in France at the Brittany holiday cottage with my daughter.
I can't wait to get the decorations out and pick up the tree a friend has kindly picked up for me while I was in the UK working. A local school sold the freshly cut trees to raise money for the school.
There is a wonderful large tree in the garden of La Forge and each year I use a fishing rod to send a weight over the top of the tree to hoist the Christmas tree lights up high. The tree is the first thing anyone sees entering Kerbourbon from Chapel Nerve so its a pleasant welcome into the hamlet.
I expect that straight after the Christmas holiday the enquires for the holiday cottage will come in fast, as families got together over the festive season and talked about holidays for the oncoming season. 2010 will be my 5th season running the cottage and for the last 4 seasons the cottage is fully booked by mid February.
2009 was the best year todate with 19 weeks booked, I'm hoping to book 20 weeks plus for this up coming season.
Looking forward to greeting all the new guest and old returning to the cottage.
