Preparing for 2014

During the winter of 2012/13 we completely re-decorated Le Grebe

and La Colombe.  As part of our desire to keep our gites as fully

up-to-date as possible iPod/iPhone docking stations were introduced

in all 3 gites and Senseo coffee makers added to the kitchen equipment.

New all-season duvets and pillows were replaced in all the bedrooms,

including 4.5 tog, lightweight, duvets specifically for the summer.

Also during 2013 large modern parasols and barbecues were added

to the external equipment in Le Grebe and Le Pluvier.  These proved

to be extremely successful and well received by guests in 2013 so for

2014 the same will be added to the garden of La Colombe. 

The children's play equipment installed in 2013 was very well used.

All these changes are reflected in the new photos which appear in

this website.

Le Nouveau Bulletin
Many of our guests have asked to be kept up-to-date with

developments at Les Petites Cigognes, so we publish our news-

letter Le Nouveau Bulletin annually.  As part of our website

development we now include the 2013 edition of Le Nouveau

Bulletin as well as previous editions on this page.

Garden Update

A major long-term project for has been to develop the gardens

and area behind the gites.  Planting in the gite gardens is quickly

maturing and the shrubs and hedging planted around the pool have

now firmly established themselves.

Altogether we have now planted 250 trees in 'The Triangle' field

in the last few years.  This has included hazel for coppicing, as

well as blackthorn, acer and hornbeam.  Despite the severe winters,

droughts and torrential rain, most of these saplings have survived. 

The woodland is at last beginning to look a bit more than a few

sticks in the ground!

Private Vineyard Visits and Local Wine Tastings
In partnership with the wine shop Le Dit-Vin in Descartes, we

can now offer guests private vineyard visits. Wine tastings have

always been very popular at Le Dit-Vin. No matter whether you

prefer white, red, rosé or sparkling, we can arrange a visit of

regional vineyards to suit your taste or a tasting at the shop.

These are by appointment only.
