For some reason or another, Le Chant d’Oiseau inspires the literary side of some of our guests. I was just reading through the guest book this morning, looking for an address and I found these three poems. All lovely, all written by guests and I thought I’d share them with you.

We thought we’d stay for just one night
On this quiet, pretty site
‘Le Chant d’Oiseau’ – so apt a name
From dawn to dusk the birdsong came.
An ancient farmhouse – shuttered blue
An idyll created by Syb and Stu
Walks with Bracken down a wooded road.
In the shower – a brown warty toad!
A barn owl swooped – a sight to see
Dejeuner under the willow tree.
Crickets chirping on warm, starry nights
A visit to the caves of the Troglodytes.
Gentle bike rides round about.
Sightseeing ’til we were chateau-ed out!
Splendid meals, great bon hommie
That’s how ONE night stretched into three…then four….then twelve!

Pat Needham. June 2006.

Le Chant is Idyllic, friendly, fantastic….
We rested, relaxed and recycled our plastic!

Stu showed us lizards and a barbeque glory….
Syb delighted us with her food and mad stories!

They came to our rescue with the airbed they lent….
The boys drank our beer and fleeced all our cents!

The kids slowly but surely turned blue in the pool….
But….we SO kicked your ass at the boule!

Thanks for a wonderful holiday. Amanda, Tim & family. April 2007.

With a heavy heart and a tear in the eye
How sad we all are to be saying goodbye
3 weeks here has just flown past
Our holiday is over, but the memories will last
Good company, good food, plenty of good wine
Le Chant d’Oiseau always guarantee a good time!
Stu & Syb and every Bradley*
Love you all and we’ll miss you madly
Here’s to next year and the Boomerang Gang
‘Cos before you know it, we’ll be back with a bang!

*Including animals of course!!
X Great big kiss for Niall from Izzy!

The Maynards. August 2007.

Until the next time, au revoir.
