Christmas Message

Seasons Greetings
Nigel, Suzie & Family would like to wish everybody a Very Happy Christmas and New Year.
Even though we still have guests staying sometimes throughout the winter, project Metarie does not stop. We have started working on the new bedroom for the Pressoir; this will give the budget conscious affordable 2 bedroom accommodation. The swimming pool was a great hit this last season so we have started working on the surroundings; we hope to add a shower, an arbor for shade and solar heating before the next season opening of the pool. We have already added a few extras to all the gites and soon full WIFI coverage will be added so you’ll be able to keep in contact and work from here if that’s what you require.
Remember La Rochelle and the Islands are still open in the winter and spring and if you want to get away for a long or short break Ryanair do some great deals, recently a couple came out for about £5 each return! You will need jumpers and coats now but we still have the big bright blue skies and see the sun most of the time.
La Rochelle holds many events and exhibitions throughout the year, see the tourist information from our website, but to highlight a few not to miss is Bastille day (fireworks galore everywhere) and Francopholies (music galore in the streets) both in July, Spectacular sound and light show and boat show in September, Sailing races, Jet Ski racing, Motor car rally’s, fetes, fairs, car boots, antique fairs, Historical patrimonial weekend when most museums are free, markets, shopping, the list goes on, La Rochelle is a very vibrant city with lots going on for every body.
If you are a party, group or organisation and would like to arrange a themed holiday here we can help you organise your stay and preferred activity, locally we have horse riding, sailing courses or sail boat hire for as long as you like (with a trained yachtsmen), Motor boat course with a certificate when finished, Canoeing freshwater and on the sea (you can canoe out to fort Boyard), test your aptitude for heights at vertigo parc high in the trees on a rope, a weekend gambling in the many Casinos or a day at the races in Chàtelaillon. Whatever, we are here to help.
We do have enough accommodation for up to 14 guests now so why not bring the family or friends you’ll be in different buildings but together on the same site.
Anyway we look forward to meeting all our guests in the new year of 2010.
Bon fête et Bonne Année à tous.
