Running a French Holiday Gite in Rural Brittany

Builders and Guests both arriving at the same time ?

As I've blogged a couple of times already, in January we arranged for a builder to build us a new patio and re-gravel one of the two driveways at our Brittany Holiday Gite. All was on track for the work to be done when we were over at the Gite at Easter, but unfortunately the builder had to reschedule, and then we had guests in the Gite after us, so the work was delayed again.

The work was due to start last week but the builder's previous job over-ran so we re-scheduled (again) for next week. The materials have all been ordered and are due to be delivered next week - so all systems are go to start on the 2nd May.

Then on Saturday I received a booking enquiry for our holiday home from a couple who were interesting in staying from the 8th May; and after I told them a little more about the Gite, they confirmed their holiday booking.

The builder has promised to get the patio built and the new driveway laid next week before the guests arrive so with a bit of luck (and of course good weather in Brittany) we won't have them both at the Gite at the same time ....
