    My Riley is (finally) at the end of its restoration, and we need to return to the UK (Dorset) to drive it back here. Ideally you need to be one or two people with a car suitable for bringing me, Joan, and Rex back. Rex is a well behaved border collie who is used to car (and ferry) travel with no problems. We are used to travelling with little luggage, but will need to bring a few tools and, being an RMB, a spare halfshaft!

    In return, you get 4 or 5 nights in either the chateau, or if you want complete privacy, the nearby villa. Links to the chateau and villa adverts here:



    You might be able to get a discounted ferry booking off the back of your “reservation” here. You will have use of all facilities advertised…we have a large heated indoor pool, full size tennis court, 54 acres of woodland and meadow, river with Category 1 trout fishing. Lovely quiet rural setting, but just 10 minutes walk to local shops and 2 good bar-restaurants. We are close to Poitiers (Futuroscope) and Parthenay.

    Your stay will need to be arranged so as for us to return 22nd May at earliest and early June at latest. You are welcome to stay for longer than 4 or 5 days, and we are happy to offer a good discount for extra days. 5 days free if you drop us at our destination in Dorset (near Sherborne), or 4 days free if too far out of your way and we need to be collected from some convenient meeting point.

    Also regarding Rex, he usually travels on the back seat; we will be bringing a seat cover, and he will happily sit with us. If your car has a capacious boot and window, he is equally happy travelling there provided there’s space.

    You can email me, or perhaps easier to respond via the messaging service of either of those adverts. If you would prefer to talk, let me have a landline number and I’ll call you.

    Incidentally….for other holidays, we offer discounted rates for club members, and higher discounts for those arriving in old cars…such as Lagondas!

    Someone has now taken us up on this; so if you were pondering; you’re too late!
