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)

Covid-19 Global Pandemic

by La Forge on 04/21/20

Unfortunately we are not able to take any bookings until we know it is safe to travel again. At the moment it is difficult to see when the lockdowns in France and England will be relaxed and society begins to return to normal.

We are hopeful that travel restrictions will be lifted towards the end of July but this depends upon a great deal of different factors, nearly all of which are out of our control.

For anybody that has a holiday booked with us later in the year we are deferring any decisions until the position becomes clear.

Just a quick note on Brittany Ferries. In our experience you will receive a full refund in the form of a voucher as long as it is Brittany Ferries that makes the cancellation. If you make the cancellation yourself Brittany Ferries will deduct your deposit and send you a voucher for the balance. Another option is that you can change the date of travel to later in the year or to next year. If you were to choose the latter option then we would be happy to mirror those changes.

Thankfully we have a presence at La Forge so the garden and the maintenance will still be regularly attended.

Please stay safe and as risk free as possible. And hopefully we'll see you all again once all this is over.

BONNE CHANCE A TOUT LE MONDE!
(Good luck everybody!)

Travel Update Following Brexit.

by La Forge on 02/05/20

The United Kingdom has left the European Union on 31st January 2020 but a transitional period is in place until 31st December 2020.  This means that there will be no changes to your travel arrangements until after the transitional period has been completed.

You will not notice any differences when entering or leaving France.

Brittany Ferries has put together a useful list of Q&A's to reassure you.

Please click here to be taken to the Brittany Ferries website.

Good News!

by La Forge on 12/15/19

We've taken a second booking for August 2020!

By booking through Holiday France Direct you can claim a 20% discount off your Brittany Ferry crossing.  There is the option to set sail on the fastcat Normandie Express, which takes as little as three hours from Portsmouth to Cherbourg, or perhaps you would prefer to cruise across by day (or night) taking in the opportunity to dine in style.  There are also other shops on board selling luxury goods such as perfume, chocolates and wines and spirits.

If you would like to know more then please visit our website or Holidays France Direct for great holiday deals.
