As we near Christmas the weather has been unforgiving, in our 15 plus years we have never seen such a wet period with what feels like non stop rain, luckily live in a valley and overlook farmland and a pound that is flooded. If it continues my choice of footwear will change from Crocks to Flippers. Mind you have such a hot summer this is probably the pattern, no complaints when we had months of blue sky and high temps.
At this time of year we have taken our rest from a busy season as we start preparing for 2020 lots of maintenance, gardening, decorating and improvements to ensure that #carmagnacluxuryretreat maintains its newly acquired 5*" 'meublé de tourisme' rating which we are very proud of.
This years improvements include new flooring to the lower ground floor bedroom and walk in storage cupboard, this will be a great addition for our guests to store suitcases and other things like child gate, z bed's, baby bath, high chair and a travel cot. We also have some new garden furniture to replace our wooden chairs and a new large cantilever umbrella to match the investment we made last year in furniture around the pool. French free to air TV arrives too, so our French guests have local TV. This supports our commitment to provide a home from home feel so our guest can cook, swim in the heated pool at #carmagnacluxuryretreat, BBQ, play games (ping pong, trampoline, sandpit and swing play boules) or simply relax around the pool or in the shade.
A big thanks to all our guests of #carmagnacluxuryholiday for looking after our home and we look forward to those returning again in 2020 and our new guests. We wish you all a very #HappyChristmas and #NewYear.
