Sunday 28th June

I am starting to write this blog at 7.30 am having served our second breakfast. Today was the annual triathlon held around Lac du Drennec and we have had athletes staying in both Priory and Hayloft as our first Chambres d’Hotes guests. As you’d expect, Dave prepared a beautifully presented French breakfast of croissant, pain…

Sunday 21st June

Following our gentler week I spoke about in last week’s blog we have started to ramp up the pace again and turn our attention to completing Granary gîte. We said goodbye to our Jersey clients yesterday and their lovely dog Bently. They left us with some fantastic comments about the state of our accommodation, the…

Sunday 14th June

As you will recall, we rewarded ourselves with a few days off having completed the refurbishment of Priory last Friday. Well, those few days became the whole of last week and, while we haven’t been completely idle, we have enjoyed what can almost be called a week off, certainly a slower tempo one! Thankfully this…

Sunday 7th June – Priory Complete

Firstly – as requested via Facebook – first billing goes to Dave’s aunt and uncle, Chris and Clint, who arrived with us yesterday for a week’s holiday in Hayloft. This is their second visit to us, the first being in February before we had started any of the refurbishments, so they have been able to…

June? Is it really June already? Where did May go? We cannot believe how quickly this year is going and worryingly how close we are to ‘the season’ with so much work left to do!! And to think we naïvely thought that we could be complete in all our gîtes and open for business by…

Sunday 24th May

Our focus this week has remained working in Priory to prepare for our first guests (2 weeks and counting) and while we have made good progress and we remain, I am confident, on track I have not attach many photos to this post as all rooms are still works in progress rather than having completed…

Sunday 17th May

  Well, as we had planned after the frenetic work of the previous week, last week has been rather more relaxed and, if I’m being honest, you’ll see we have taken our foot of the pedal a little and, as I posted my blog last Monday, I can update from Tuesday to this evening. Our…

Sunday 10th May – Hayloft Refurbishment Completed

          OK, so I was planning to post this blog last night. I had started to write the text yesterday morning and had every intention to upload it in the evening when we had updated some photos on the website. However, as the weather was so fantastic mid-afternoon we thought we’d…

Sunday 26th April

Happy Sunday all. Sadly, the amazing weather we have enjoyed for the last couple of weeks has finally broken and it has been damp and showery for the last couple of days. While not as appealing for BBQ’ing it will be great for the garden.   It is amazing how quickly things grow here with the…
