Departing guests

The last booked guests of the season have just left La Pagerie.

We have been letting out La Pagerie for the past three years and thought I would compare the lettings from the past three years. We are still hopeful of some winter bookings for this year though!!

In 2007 the house was let for 20 weeks. This rose to 27 weeks in 2008 and has dropped slightly to 25 weeks for 2009. This obviously means that the income has also dropped for this year whilst the costs to maintain the house have risen (especially the local taxes!).

We have managed to fill the main summer weeks (July and August) for the past 2 years which is good.

We have already taken two bookings for 2010 - both for two week bookings which is great for us.

On the whole, not a bad season!

Welcome to the new blog site for La Pagerie.

I am setting this up so that when I find useful information about life in France, I can pass this on to other people. I tend to find this information from time to time from other websites and speaking to people in France.

I hope you enjoy the information provided here and please do get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions.
