Fab time to stay in Le Chèvrefeuille in the Dordogne, as pound rises


 Are you thinking of taking a holiday in Le Chèvrefeuille B&B, in the heart of the Dordogne? If so, you’ll be pleased to learn that it’s now far more affordable to do so, because the pound to euro exchange rate has hit a 7-year high. To be specific, sterling recently touched 1.4256 against Europe’s common currency, its strongest since November 7th 2007.


What this means for you is that, when you exchange currencies for your Dordogne holiday, you’ll get far more euros than in the recent past. For example, if you exchange £2,500 to spend a fortnight in Le Chèvrefeuille, you’ll now get +€560 more than if you’d done so back at the start of 2014, when the pound was far weaker.


In other words, that’s +€560 extra sitting in your wallet, at no additional cost to you, just because the exchange rate has risen! With that sort of money, you could extend your relaxing Dordogne holiday, splash out in some excellent French cuisine, in short make the most of everything France has to offer!


Moreover, it could soon become even better value to holiday in Le Chèvrefeuille, if sterling climbs higher versus the euro. The pound could exceed this 7-year high, first, if Greece exits the Eurozone, as looks entirely possible. Second, the pound may also continue to climb, because the UK economy is easily outpacing the Eurozone’s.


With this in mind, make the most of this advantageous exchange rate, and enjoy your Dordogne holiday in Le Chèvrefeuille!
