What's going on?
La Forge III 12th Anniversary Party and Bastille Day
Friday 13th to Sunday 15th July 2018
We have booked out La Forge from Wednesday 11th July to Tuesday 17th July 2018. Most people will arrive on Friday morning and leave Sunday evening but you can stay for longer if you wish. And for this year we will be offering the extra night on Sunday 15th because there is something rather interesting on the T.V.
Main Info: Friends, family and Select Club members are welcome. Brittany Ferries: Portsmouth to Cherbourg currently standing at £66.60 per person return with our Club Voyage travel club code F77789. These prices will increase nearer the time.
Ferry Times: Friday morning 9.00 to 13.00, return Sunday or Monday evening 17.00 to 19.00. All you need to do is book your ferry http://www.brittany-ferries.co.uk/to Cherbourg
Free transport (14 spaces) from the ferry to La Forge or bring your own vehicle. You are more than welcome to bring your own car or camper van as there is ample parking available.
We'll be providing a BBQ, cheese, snacks, beer, wine and cider. We will be asking for a contribution towards the costs by charging for room and camping accommodation.
The detail: This event is to celebrate our 12th year of running La Forge http://www.le-plessis-lastelle.com/index.html as a holiday home. It is open to all of our friends, family and select club members of La Forge and will be running from Friday 13th July to Sunday 15th July, with the main event being the party on Saturday night. There will be music and possibly some live performances, and Uncle Eric's quiz!
We are arranging this to coincide with the Bastille Day celebrations which commemorate the events of the French revolution on 14th July 1789. And there is also a little football match on the Sunday.
We are going to set up a camping area in the garden again so bring your own tent and sleeping bag. We can take your things across in advance if you are going to be arriving as foot passengers, and Florence will put your tent up for you!
We intend to bulk buy the food for a barbecue and all the beer, cider, wine, cheese and soft drinks in advance. We will be charging a fee for accommodation to cover some of the costs, all rates below shown are per room per night:
Room 1: Double bed en suite. £42 ideally would suit a couple. Already reserved Michael and Julie
Room 2: 5 single beds. £42 ideally would suit 5 friends or family sharing. Already reserved. Dave et ses trois enfants!
Room 3: Double bed. £36 ideally would suit a couple. Already reserved. Magic and Sonia
Camping £7.50 per person per night.
On the Sunday/Monday we will be returning you to the port of Cherbourg where you can have a look around the shops or perhaps more sensibly pop into the Eldorado bar to sample some locally brewed ales.
You can of course stay with us for longer if you wish, especially if you would like to help set up. Without the support that we received last time I don't think we could have made the party happen. Road Crew, you know who you are!
Please let us know if you would like to attend and we will book you a place on a first come first served basis. Feel free to ask any questions you may have.

This is the link (for those of you without whatsapp or facebook) to the kayaking center that we will be visiting on Saturday 15th July.
Can you let us know if you would like a single or double kayak (or if you do not want one) just in case we have to book in advance.
Lovely email from our guests who spent a week at La Forge recently:
"Just wanted to say we had a lovely time at La Forge last week.
We loved the cottage, the area and the beaches are fabulous.
We went for a walk at Agon - Courtainville on Sunday, cycled to Portbail and Barnville on Wednesday and went to Sciotot yesterday morning.
We also cycled to Monte Castre , St Patrice de Claids and Gorges, it's such a lovely area.
Also went to Bayeaux , Mont St Michel and D Day beaches.
Thanks, would love to stay there again."
