Just a short drive away from the Brittany holiday cottage with private heated swimming pool is the picturesque town of Aurray where on a Monday morning a lively market can be found.
Today we popped down for a wonder to see that we were in luck to see a guy selling small livestock and we purchased a pair of young female turkeys for just 3 1/2 euro's each, the guy said that they would be ready to eat in 3 months but then that was what I was told last year and at 6 months the bird was still small, so Ive now got 10 months to get them ready for Christmas.
Any guest booking the 2 weeks at Christmas will be given one of the birds as a complimentary gift to enjoy a wonderful dinner. Last years bird may have been small but I think it was the best Turkey Ive ever tasted, being fed on corn for the last 3 months.
We have yet to but the chickens, as I'm after a particular type that are only sold as youngsters I decided not to buy a pair of 24 week old birds today, that way in a couple of weeks I'll but 4 youngsters and hopefully all will get on well.
La Forge is available to rent all year round and the private heated swimming pool is open from the start of April until the end of September.
