Shade for the pool area

This year we have been updating our pool area, earlier we added the margelles (edging tiles) around the pool, outdoor shower and we also put a large sun shade at one end of the pool, so you can get some shade from the hot summer sun.

Bastille Day Celebrations in Landrais

Bastille Day on the 14th July is celebrated all over France usually with festivals & fireworks. In our little village of Landrais in the afternoon they have games for the children. In the evening the mairie organises a 4 course meal this usually consists of roasting a suckling pig or a choice of Charentaise escargot (snails) or sardines with a good local band playing. Then when it is dark the children are given lanterns & everybody goes through the village to the field where there is a firework display followed by a disco outside the mairie, all with a fantastic atmosphere.

Going for a dip

It's 34° in the shade by the pool and the temperature in the pool reads 26° perfect for cooling off on these hot summer days.

Like previous guests we have had a wonderful stay at the farmhouse. Such a beautiful house and so well styled! Thankyou Nigel and Suzanne for your hospitality and helpful suggestions. Could we add Brouage to the list of "must do's". Stunning little visit to make. It has been wonderful to explore the area and to come back to the welcome pool each day.
