Brittany holiday cottage with private pool


video


Today I popped into the chicken run at the Brittany holiday cottage with private pool to discover the smallest bird not looking at all well, normally it would be the fastest bird in the flock but today it remained stationary and allowed me to stroke it and pick it up.


Over the last 2 days the weather has changed and temperatures have dropped from the gorgeous week we enjoyed last week at La Forge with a few days of rain. Deciding to act i took the youngster inside and placed in in a box with bedding, food, water and a heat source and fingers crossed the bird will pull through.


I bought 5 young birds 4 weeks ago, a lot earlier in the year than previously and have now had 2 birds to fall ill. I also bought a single bird that was just about to start laying and that has been producing an egg a day for the last week.


Next week the first guest arrive at the Brittany holiday cottage and there children will be able to collect at least one egg per day.

Brittany holiday cottage with private pool

Just 20 minutes away from the Brittany holiday cottage with private pool is the medieval town of Hennebont with its embattlements over looking the river Blavet. As it was a bright sunny day on Tuesday I pooped down to the Blavet and took the following video to give you a look at what was voted the best course fishing river in Brittany, I was situated about 2 miles north of Hennebont.

The Blavet runs from here up to and through Pontivey which is again just 20 minutes away from La Forge. For a short movie of 3 of the local places to fish around La forge click this link.

Brittany holiday cottage with private pool

With clear blue sky's today at the Brittany holiday cottage with private pool I opened the swimming pool today and jet washed the pool terrace ready for the arrival of the first guest staying at La Forge on 7th April.

It was a beautiful day and I was surprised to see how much colour I had caught working out in the garden of the Brittany holiday cottage.

Brittany holiday cottage with private pool

Just 5 min away from the Brittany holiday cottage with private pool is a lovely private 2 acre lake stocked with Carp, Pike, Zander, Perch and Ive been told some really big Eels.

The cost per day is 10 euros or 5 euros for an evening per angler allowing 2 rods per person.

The good news with the lake being private is that no rod licence is required and being only 5 min from La Forge is a great place to pop along for a few hours of fishing after enjoying a day out.

Brittany holiday cottage with private pool and gym

Just 100 meters from the Brittany holiday cottage with private pool and gym is the river Tarun which contains a good head of wild trout, the river joins the river Evel after 1km from this point.

Guest staying at La Forge have taken trout on the fly, asits a narrow river with alot of trees along the back a short rod is esential and care taken with your casting. I bought a small 1.8 meter spinning rod that I use on the river, it was the shortest rod I could find and I use a preserved small fish set up to cast and wobble on the retrieve.

You need a fishing licence to fish in France just as you do in the UK but once you have your licence you can fish any river system and cross farmers fields to access the river. The spinning rod is available to use for the guest staying at the holiday cottage if you fancy a go.
