Running a French Holiday Gite in Rural Brittany

More house-hunting guests and more repairs needed

The last couple of weeks we've had a couple staying in our Britany cottage who (like our February guests) have been house-hunting themselves in the Morbihan/Cotes d'Armor regions of Brittany - in that respect our Gite is well positioned for both departments as we're literally 100 yards from the border line!

Whilst commuting to work this morning I received a text from the current guests to tell me that they've found and agreed the purchase of a house at the pretty village and lake of Jugon Les Lacs which is about 30 miles North of our Gite. Great news for them and we obviously wish them well in following their own french adventure.

Their text also went on to say that one of the driveway gates had snapped in half in strong winds!

Oh well, I'll add it to the repair/rennovation list for when we're over at Easter '07.

The photo shows the gates (in obviously happier times) and was taken in July this year after the driveway was finished. On the opposite side of the gates can be seen one of the neighbouring houses in the hamlet (there are only 5 houses in total including us) and rising up the hill behind the old swimming pool (which has now been replaced by a larger 15' one) is the garden - part of which I dug over and made into a bigger flowerbed whilst over in November.
