Our photo contest 2019 theme “Holidays”

As we see each year so many nice holiday photos of our guests, we have started a photo contest for the first time in 2014. The theme for 2019 was “Holidays” and everyone who stayed with us between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019 was kindly invited to participate in our photo contest. All guests were free to photograph what he or she wanted, as long as their holidays (in any form)  was on the picture and the picture was taken in the Vendée or in a radius of 100 km around us. A maximum of 1 photo per person.

As we can see below, we have received 48 beautiful and very varied photos. A total of 7 children’s submissions (up to 17 years) and 41 adults.

We have an independent jury that knows our region well, as well as taking photos and / or being able to judge:

Stéphanie ROBARD from the Tourist Office of our municipality Challans-Gois https://www.challansgois-tourisme.fr/

Claudia LAUMEL from Natur’allemand in Givrand www.facebook.com/naturallemand or her website www.naturallemand.com

The jury will meet in January 2020. We are very curious to kwow the winners. For the 2 winners there is a choice of enlarging the winning photo or a package of tasty things from our area.

The photos below are internet quality because of the loading of the photos on our site. Our jury will get to see the original photo that is self-evidently in higher quality.

21 July 2019, A wonderful summer! July 2019 

Time flies when you are having fun! Our guests (and we too) enjoy everything that is organized around us to the fullest. Ao a nice kite festival and the running competition on the Passage du Gois. We have learned from our mistakes in the past and during the Foulees du Gois we block our own parking. Thanks to the drone of our guest Jorgen, we now also have beautiful pictures of our little paradise from above, as well as from the dyke and sea behind our house. As always, Martine is enjoying cooking with the products of the season for our table d’hote. With the wonderful summer weather we have often eaten in the evenings next to the pool. The tomatoes in the greenhouse are ripe, but otherwise it is a bit quiet this year in our vegetable garden. Our flower garden is a sea of colors. All our new plants have grown well and are already in full bloom. Quite a few yuccas even fell over, as there were so many flowers this year.

28 july 2019, July 2019 super sunny!

We won the first prize this week! Perhaps partly due to the spontaneous “Belgium quiz” from quizmaster Hemko 😉 Our guests sought cooling by the sea and in our swimming pool during the heat. Our garden fortunately withstood the warmth well. The Spanish Marguérites are still smiling at us, our lavender has now been harvested and the butterflies are flying around again. All the tests of table d’hotes dishes this spring were not for nothing. Our guests enjoy, among other things, the blanc limé aperitif, chorizo meatballs, crème de mogettes, lasagne with Vendée ham, gateau nantais, lemon tart and yoghurt ice cream. This week’s table d’hote even ended with coffee / tea on the Passage du Gois because of the fireworks on the island of Noirmoutier.….

19 may 2019, Our summerseason 2019 has started!

We have started the summer season of 2019 with great pleasure. All our accommodations are spik and span, the gardens are neat, our terrace is finished and our new table tennis table has been baptised. It was also time for a party, because Hemko turned 50 at the beginning of May. Of course we celebrated this and as entertainment for Hemko’s group of friends from the Netherlands we did some nice new things in our area, which we now also could highly recommend to our guests. A nice boat trip to Noirmoutier from Port du Bec with https://www.facebook.com/lamiraldescotes/ Wine tasting including a delicious meal at https://www.facebook.com/la.cave.nature.once.upon.a.wine/ and karting on a beautiful outdoor track (90 km/hr and with a difference in height) at https://www.facebook.com/Martini-Racing-Kart-Officiel in Challans. Hemko makes again an agenda every week for our guests with what there is to do in our immediate surroundings that week (markets, activities, flea markets, concerts, our own weekly activity, table d’hote etc). We now just have to prepare the vegetable garden for the summer.

7 april 2019, Preparations for the summer season.

We had another very useful week; among other things we emptied our pool, oiled our garden furniture, a few m3 of gravel were distributed over our yard, we collected new brochures, we had help in the garden so all trees and shrubs have now been pruned (see before and after photo), new plants have been planted and our terrace is almost almost finished!

14 april 2019, Our garden becomes more colourful every day!

We enjoy the wonderful weather and meanwhile work hard for the start of the new summer season on April 20. Our swimming pool is clean again and full of frresh water, we have done some more investments, the last stone has been laid and every time the garden becomes more beautiful and tidier. We also see more and more color in the garden. Not only becouse of the plants, but also because of the animals. Some are even immortalized.

22 April 2019, Our guests enjoy the sun (and we too)
