Time absolutely flies past when one is busy. It seems like yesterday since I wrote Part One of this blog and yet three weeks have passed by. In the meantime Jenny and I have spent a few days in Belle Isle en Mer, managed to finish off the decorations to L’Ecurie gite and have given one of our letting bedrooms, that we call Jean Oriot, a thorough make over. We have some details to finish and maybe a carpet to change, but it looks good, don’t you think?
The work schedule was really started by the need to replace the roof covering on the gite. The nails had rusted badly allowing some of the slates to slide off the roof and the frost had seriously damaged the ridge tiles. The re-roofing works were done in late February and the roofing company, Gilbert Moal of Cleder, did a marvelous job, on time. The roof looked smart, but the external paintwork did not look very good at all.
This has now been finished, using a different colour scheme of charcoal grey and rust red. This scheme has beed carried through into the main living room, where we have used a pale and mid-grey colour scheme to compliment both the exterior and the kitchen. Whilst we were about it we redecorated all the other rooms too! Jenny and I are thrilled with the results. For more information on renting this cottage and our chambers d’hôtes ~ click here.
