9 years ago ...


.... we brought the boys over to France to see the house that was to become our home and gite here in Normandy.

This was the gite then - a cow shed and hay barn.

If you look through the photos on this website you can see how it has all changed rather since then!

Oh and look how small the boys were ...

Penguins at Jurques Zoo, Normandy

This photo was taken at Jurques Zoo which is just 20mins from the gite.  2 young boys about to embark on a new life in France only knowing one French word - bonjour.  Now both taller than me and both are bilingual.

If you are interested in staying at Eco-Gites of Lenault we have dates available up to July 1st and then from Aug 27th. 

Jurques Zoo is open from February through to the end of October and you can read more about it on this blog post.

So what were you up to 9 years ago?
