Running a French Holiday Gite in Rural Brittany

The new patio and driveway have started !

Following on from Monday's blog entry about the building work starting soon, I was delighted to receive an email today that the new patio and driveway for our Brittany Holiday Gite has started at last.

One of the jobs we wanted doing was to level the ground so that we could site the swimming pool near to the patio instead of in the courtyard on the opposite side of the Gite (where it was last year). I don't think either I or the builder appreciated just how much of a slope there was on the ground when he agreed to do it - apparently it's required a lot of digging and took longer than predicted.

Good job he was using a mini digger and not doing it by hand.

Hopefully I'll get some photos of the work soon to share.
