STOP PRESS: La Forge NOT for sale

by La Forge on 08/03/22

Dear friends and family


You can't accuse us of being decisive!

After a long and enjoyable early summer stay at La Forge we just fell back in love with the old place. Sure, there was so much to do with everyone getting stuck into the cleaning and redecorating... I almost expected Nick Knowles to walk in at any moment.

For my part I sold several bikes to French kids, tackled the bramble jungle, removed wasp's nests, and made several trips to the tip.

But, even after receiving a favourable valuation from Immobilier du Coin (Regis is a lovely man), we just couldn't let it go.

We hope to be ready to welcome holiday makers once again from late spring 2023, so watch this space.

Thanks for your patience

La Forge is For Sale

by La Forge on 02/22/22

Dear friends and family


We have arrived at the conclusion that we will not be running La Forge as a holiday home again. There are many reasons but the biggest of these is that we have just run out of energy and enthusiasm.

So it is for sale either as a holiday home or as a main home. We are happy to include the furniture, fixtures and fittings in the sale. There are too many items to list, as you can imagine from running the holiday let since early 2006, but there are things like beds, tables, chairs, televisions, bicycles, lawn mowers, washing machines, fridge freezer, etcetera.

There are two ways that the property can be purchased. The first is through the standard route of buying the property from our limited company. This would involve solicitor's fees. The second is to acquire the shares of the limited company and take on the whole business. The company is registered as a company in England and Wales and is fully up to date with Companies House and HM Revenue and Customs. There are no creditors.

We have had so much fun in Normandie and our family holidays have been wonderful and care free away from the bustle and hustle of city life. We have had so many happy customers over the years too.

La Forge is situated within the Parc Naturel Regional des Marais du Contentin et du Bessin.

Best wishes

Holiday Bookings 2021 On Hold

by La Forge on 04/01/21

Bonjour tout le monde!


We will not be in a position to offer holidays at La Forge during 2021 unless there are dramatic changes in the level and spread of Coronavirus in France.

It has not been possible for us to travel to France this year because of current restrictions so we are not able to guarantee that the property is in good order for visitors. The last thing we want to do is disappoint anybody who wants to stay at La Forge but we feel it is the most sensible option, all things considered, to put holiday bookings on hold; particularly as a large proportion of people staying with us travel from outside of France.

We want to finish this announcement on a high note by saying that we will be back in action as soon as it is safe to cross to France, so watch this space for details of our future plans.

In the meantime, stay safe and enjoy your 'staycation' wherever you are!

Meilleurs voeux!

Kev, Lizzie, Andy and Jess



 

Holiday Booking Update 2021

by La Forge on 10/27/20

Bonjour tout le monde...


We hope that you have all remained safe and well.

Our latest plan is to be able to offer holidays from the 3rd April 2021. This will give us the opportunity of getting La Forge up and running again after the enforced closure suffered for the whole of 2020. Like everybody we have found it really difficult to miss out on breaks away and for us it's been doubly frustrating knowing that La Forge has sat there empty for a whole holiday season. A visit to beautiful France has been nothing but a distant dream.

In line with the plan to reopen we have updated the website and also our advertisement with Holiday France Direct.

We hope you have the confidence to book with us and Brittany Ferries for a small deposit. We will always return the deposit if cancellations have to be made due to continued problems concerning the pandemic. Otherwise, we would be happy to move holidays to safer dates later in the year or the following year.

If you have any questions about 2021 bookings then please feel free to make contact via andy@le-plessis-lastelle.com.

Merci beaucoup for your continued support!

Andy, Jess, Kev and Lizzie

Post Pandemic Update

by La Forge on 06/24/20

We hope that you are well and are continuing to remain safe and healthy.


The UK Government lifted the travel ban to France and Brittany Ferries is running services again. Their advice is that they have made many safety adjustments to their vessels and that they believe they can keep passengers safe and suitably socially distanced by reducing numbers.

Unfortunately we are not in a position to be able to offer La Forge for holiday rental until next year. We think that the general situation is still quite volatile with the strong possibility that local spikes will continue to occur in France and the UK. Frankly we don't feel that we can operate safely until matters are brought under better control.

In the meantime we have rescheduled booked holidays to 2021 in line with customer wishes. On that note we can now take holiday bookings for next year from the second week in February 2021. We will keep our holiday tariffs the same so hopefully once you start thinking about getting away to France again you will feel confident to book through us directly or through Holiday France Direct.

La Forge is remote and on the outskirts of a small village so it is ideal for a break away from crowded places. The nearby beaches are also virtually free of people and have vast open spaces.

Please contact us if you have any questions regarding booking a break with us. We know the local area very well having spent nearly 15 years of happy holidays here.

Meilleurs voeux (Best wishes)

Andy, Jess, Kev and Lizzie
