amazing drone photos

Well, it's been quite a year. Bookings were good & our guests were lovely as always. Many return guests, which is fun, as they are a known quantity & we get to know them better each year. We were also very lucky this year, as amongst one party was someone (Alex Nicol) with a camera carrying Drone. Having taken time to take the washing in & other less picturesque items, I think the results are amazing.  He has also given us permission to use his work too. See them below, 
I think they're smashing, thank you very much Alex !

4 poster

After a long time mulling over the idea of a 4 poster, Steve finally fixed onto a design. So here's our new 4 poster !! Made out of old Oak, I love it. Hope you do.

A new mattress to go with it too.

Photos of Les Places & La Grange.......

Here are photos of the interior with the bedrooms
 numbered to correspond with the floor plan
 at the bottom of this page

The front door opens into the 'Hub' of the house, kitchen at one end,  going on to the sitting room, the other end a bedroom
 with a little en-suite loo & WHB.
 A couple more photos of the kitchen, showing the large stone sink &
 the beautiful 'Steve' made furniture & cabinets.

 The Main bedroom (1) which is off the living room

 Above bedroom 1 & the kitchen are bedrooms 2 & 3
 with their own showeroom.

 The Dining room which is off the Kitchen from where you access the South Facing terrace that looks over the pool & lavender.

 More dining room photos


Up the stairs from the dining room are bedrooms 4 & 5
 with their own showeroom

 A couple of sitting room photos.

Now we enter La Grange
 which is let out as part of Les Places.

 Coming through the front door of La Grange which is attached to Les Places but completely self contained. It sleeps 4/5.
 The Kitchen which is to the right 
 Showing the sitting room to the left.

Winter 2012-2013

 Morning walk, bright & crisp, such a simple pleasure.

 'Red sky in the morning-shepherd's warning !'-but a delight for us

 Frosty before the leaves fall

 This is a half ruined wind mill the other side of Serignac with Segos below,
 with it's 'cloches mur', showing the colours, clarity & beauty of the view.

The Lambic, a dying activity with fewer & fewer people having the right to distill their fermented fruit. Also less spirit being consumed. Luckily there are still a few old characters left to continue. A good place to sit around the boiler sharing gossip, out of the wind. Sadly they weren't there when I went past in the sunshine.
