Changes for 2016
- During the winter of 2015/16 we will be replacing the tiled floor and downstairs bathroom fittings in Le Pluvier.
- French free-to-view television will be available from Spring 2016 in all 3 gites together with UK Freeview television already installed.
- Accessibility for those with disabilities will be improved through upgrading the main step into the gites
- During the winter and spring of 2014/15 we planted a tree in the garden of each gite which is specifically to provide more shade within the garden as it grows and matures. Additionally we are planting cotoneaster hedging along the sides of all the gite gardens to further improve the ambiance and privacy of the gardens.
It's not just our guests who have fond memories of Les Petites Cigognes
Happy memories of Les Petites Cigognes were evident yesterday, 8 October, when a lady arrived asking if she could take some wedding pictures here. She has fond memories of her childhood here. Her parents and grandparents were goat farmers at Les Petites Cigognes.
Today the beautiful bride arrived with new husband and local wedding photographer to incorporate past happiness into her new life. We wish them both well for the future.

Le Nouveau Bulletin
Many of our guests have asked to be kept up-to-date with
developments at Les Petites Cigognes, so we publish
Le Nouveau Bulletin annually.
Over the last couple of years we have been developing the gardens
and area behind the gites. All the gites now have new patios and
new flower beds; the area around the pool has been planted with
shrubs and hedging which are now firmly establishing themselves.
Altogether we have now planted 220 trees in 'The Triangle' field in
the last 3 years, with another 30 planted during the spring of 2015.
This has included hazel for coppicing, as well as blackthorn, acer and hornbeam. Despite the severe winters, droughts and torrential rain
of the last few years, most of these saplings have survived. The
woodland is at last beginning to look a bit more than a few sticks in
