Today at the Brittany holiday cottage with private pool and gym I'm going to restart hitting the gym! Both Naomi and I caught colds when we popped over to the UK for Christmas and its taken up till this week to feel fit enough to get back in to training.
This morning we went for a 2 mile walk, Naomi did well as she only has 6 weeks now before young James arrives. It was a bright sunny day and we enjoyed seeing how the surrounding countryside bordering the river Tarun was flooded- just shows the power of nature.
Although the river Tarun is just 100 meters from the Brittany holiday cottages we are never in any danger of flooding ourselves as the garden is some 5 meters above the river and the cottages an additional 2 meters above that! In addition there is a lot of surrounding land that will take excess water before it ever got close to reaching our place.
Thankfully unlike the UK the French don't build properties on flood planes - it's times like this that we think about all those poor people currently suffering in the UK with flood waters and we hope they get their lives back together as soon as possible.
La Forge is available to rent all year where as La Veille Maison is available from the May half term until the start of September.
If you ever fancy a holiday in Brittany this pair of holiday cottages offer a fantastic location to stay.
