New additions to Maison Lairoux Holiday Homes in 2017

New for 2017 at Maison Lairoux Holiday Homes

At the end of September Jason and I managed to grab a quiet week away from Maison Lairoux and we headed up to Brittany for a few days of sight seeing and relaxing! We stayed in a hotel near to Carnac and visited lots of lovely towns along the coast including Vannes, Quiberon and Auray. We also took a boat around the Morbihan Gulf and visited some of the islands. All very relaxing and we ate way to many crepes!!

This winter we had lots of small projects to complete for each of the holiday homes. Here's a list of what we have finished (just in case you think that we sit around twiddling our thumbs over the quieter winter months!!)

I need another holiday after all of this!!
Changes to L'Ecurie and Le Vieux Café in the winter of 2016/2017

Our main focus this winter was Le Vieux Café

Le Vieux Café:
- Installed new double glazing to the 7 windows in this holiday home to match what we had installed in our house last winter
- Finally got around to re-staining all the shutters - all 11 sets!
- Master bedroom - plaster-boarded and insulated two exterior walls as they were damp in the winter
- Repainted Master bedroom & changed light fitting
- Exposed stone walls around the windows in the 2 twin bedrooms
- Fitted window sills to all bedrooms
- Replaced all the tiles in the kitchen and then repainted all walls and ceiling beams, changed light fitting
- Painted hallway walls and beamed ceiling
- Painted lounge walls and beamed ceiling, changed light fitting
- Replaced all towels
- Replaced most bed linens
- Added new wall art to lounge

- Painted the master bedroom
- Replaced all towels
- Replaced all bed linens for kingsized bed
- Filled in & insulated a large recess in one of the bedroom walls
