Brittany holiday cottage with private pool

This week at the Brittany holiday cottage with private pool the weather has been dry and bright and as my new macro lens arrived for my Olympus slr digital camera i took advantage of the weather this morning to give the lens a try.

I just stayed within the garden at the holiday cottage yet still managed to find some heather in blossom and some toad stalls flourishing beside the boule court.

I will post more macro pictures over the next few months taken around the local area of La Forge and La Veille Maison.

Brittany holiday cottage with heated pool

With a new chicken house built by my dad for the chickens residing at the Brittany holiday cottage with heated pool all are enjoying the extra room. The chicken house is 40 cms above the floor on legs therefore creating an increase in total floor space because the old house was at ground level and gives the birds a place to stay out of the rain.

Ive also laid a few paving slaps down for the house to rest on and I've noticed this prevents the water dispenser to keep clean.

The only problem I encounter with the chicken run is that during the winter months its so muddy in there and is really smelly due to a mix of wet mud and chicken poop.

The chickens have been a great asset for the holiday cottage in that children staying in La forge or La Veille Maison and interact with the birds and collect the fresh eggs each day.

Brittany holiday cottage with private pool

La Forge the Brittany holiday cottage with private pool has just reached a new milestone with 22 weeks booked for this year.

Of the 4 properties that the previous owners owned La forge was always the first to be booked, I guess being beamed through out and oozing with character it makes a wonderful holiday destination. In addition to its inherent attributes I always spend fresh money each year making improvements so that it meets the expectations of my guest staying within the property.

It has always been a policy to ask guest what changes if any should be made and I always take on board suggestions to improve each year, its such a lovely feeling when guest first walk through the doors to hear them say this looks wonderful and in a lot of cases better then was shown via the pictures on the website. Its what makes running a holiday cottage for me a real pleasure and I will always endeavour to make sure guest enjoy there stay at La Forge.

I am looking forward to my next guest stay starting 10th November for 8 nights as she has stayed in La Forge on several occassions, staying here under the 2 previous owners before me, so it will be lovely to see her reactions on the improvements made.

The good news now is that from this year La Veille Maison is also available to rent for a limited season so more people are able to enjoy this wonderful part of Brittany that I fell in love with.
