November 2018 Newsletter

News from Gites de La Richardière
In October we were delighted to have been involved in the widely acclaimed  "L'Art et Lard". arts festival in our local village, Le Petit Pressigny. As members of the village's Fete Committee, we have been involved with the preparations for quite some time. Indeed, recent guests have volunteered to help erect tents and get involved. (No pressure - really!). On the days (Saturday 13th October and Sunday 14th October) Dave provided the Public Address system for the whole event and played music with his band "Celtiqua". Patience baked cakes and helped out in one of the most popular attractions - The English Tea Garden. There were many art exhibits and examples of food and craft from all around the region. It is well worth a visit to our Gites in October if you are interested in Arts and crafts.
    
   
We are delighted to announce that, following a recent inspection by the local Tourist Office in Loches, we have been awarded a classification of 3 stars. The great advantage for our guests is that the tourist Tax rate is reduced from the new 5% rate which begins in January 2019, to a simple 1 Euro per adult, per night. Those who have already booked will be contacted shortly with a revised (lower) price.
Our website and email address survey has been well-supported, but has left us with a dilemma as two particular addresses have been equally popular. Whereas we now know which addresses we won't be using in the future, we are undecided about our way forward and so we have extended the survey. If you haven't had a chance to look, please take a look at this address  
It only takes 40 seconds! We'll keep the survey open until the New Year. Thank you.
Best wishes,
Dave and Patience
