EXCITING NEWS: 2018 Tour de France opening stage has been confirmed and La Tannerie Farmhouse is ideally situated for Stage One and Two. Enjoy your day watching the race then back for a swim in the private heated swimming pool and a relax. For the week of the tour evening meals can be catered for with prior notification.
Saturday June 30 2018 the first stage will begin in Noirmoutier-en-l’Île with the opening kilometres over the Passage du Gois, they will then track the coastline for much of the day, before heading in land to finish at Fontenay-Le-Comte (12km/less than 15 minutes from us) after 195km ride. The flat finish to the stage should mean a bunch sprint, although with much of the stage consisting of a southward ride along the coast, crosswinds could well be a factor.
Stage two will cover 185km from Mouilleron-Saint Germain (43km/less than 40 minutes from us) to La Roche-sur-Yon (69km / less than 50 minutes from us), a route that stays in land in contrast to the previous day.
We will have to wait until the 17th October when further information about the tour will be released but in the meantime if you have any questions about our accommodation then please do not hesitate to contact us
New Year and despite it being a tad chilly, David and Dad have been busy putting in the new paths down the side of the swimming pool.
The decking frame is now in and has been built around the flower garden, it leads down to the second patio area under the banana tree, ready for those spring and summer evenings. Next project will be the actual decking, hoping January’s weather will be kind to us so we can finish it off
Thank you all the great memories you have given us over the past 5 years.
Best wishes Emma and David x
We have gone all fancy now, our Vix roundabout has had a complete revamp 🙂
Looks a lot nicer
So here we are Tuesday 27th September 2016 and we have started the new design for the garden, I wont give anything away but needless to say it has so far involved 40 parpangs (breeze blocks), cement and beton (concrete), a lot of oooing and arrrggging from David but I am pleased to report the first two parpangs (breeze blocks) are now in situ ready to start the lines of which eventually will become the new …….. area; can’t give it all away before the end result.
For those guests who have already stayed it is the flower bed area that is being “re-designed” but please don’t worry all the lovely flowers will still be there just with added features.
Will keep you all posted on progress
