It's official - Autumn in France is Hot Tub season!

Embracing Autumn in France

Summer is over, the kids are back at school and shops are filling up with Halloween and Christmas decorations. I didn't particularly like the autumn in the UK because it always looked and felt miserable. Everything and everyone seemed washed-out, as if the final weary days of summer had drained all the energy. But here in France it seems so different.

Like La Rentrée, the French seem to really embrace the season. They're definitely out more, walking, cycling and socialising. So I've decided that I'm going to join them, especially in the socialising part. Don't panic, I'm not intending to gate-crash the neighbour's BBQ, but we definitely need to do a bit more and invite a few friends and neighbours round for apéro. And the Autumn days and nights are perfect for entertaining - not too hot or too cold. The evenings, in particular, are perfect for spending time outdoors and gazing at the clear night skies, instead of glaring at the box in the corner of the room.

"Winter is an etching, spring a watercolour, summer an oil painting, and autumn a mosaic of them all." - Stanley Horowitz

Autumn is so sensual

The French are good at autumn, and as it takes up a quarter of the year, we should take a leaf out of their book. It's time to forget salads and think about boeuf bourguignon and home-made soups instead. If you've got an outdoor pool, then you're probably getting ready to clean it out and cover it over for the next six months. But, if you're a member of our happy hot tub family, then this season is absolutely perfect.

Harvest time, leaves turning colour, darker nights, cooler temperatures and the delicious smell of wood-smoke from the hot tub burner. What's not to love about this time of year? Keats called it the 'season of mists and mellow fruitfulness'. Every year since we bought our wood-burning tub we've called it the best season for hot tubbing.


Customer review says it all

Summer is a distant memory but we are still busy delivering hot tubs to new customers, and have been all over France in the last few weeks. As I mentioned in my September newsletter, we only have two more supplier deliveries due before Christmas with most of the tubs from our next order already spoken for. Even though deliveries often mean long days spent in the van, it's great to meet the people we have been in regularly sending updates to. Best of all though is seeing their happy faces and receiving wonderful reviews. Here's one of our latest reviews, from Julie and Sean.

After a lot of indecision on my part and Nicola's patience, we decided to purchase the Burford Deluxe. Delivery went smoothly, pushed into position on planks, levelled up and ready to go! We used the hot tub the same evening, couldn't believe how hot it got in only an hour and a bit. We were so excited and used it that same evening. Would absolutely recommend the tub and the company - Julie H. 5* Google Review

Autumn discounts

Don't forget, if you're thinking about boosting your holiday business next year, or want to celebrate Christmas and New Year in your own private jacuzzi, then you'll need to order soon. Those of you who received our recent newsletter will already know about our great Autumn discounts. But if you haven't subscribed yet, or in case you missed it, here are the details.

Until the end of November 2022 (or whilst stocks last), there is a gigantic 200€ off the Supreme step, which can be used to step into the Burford Deluxe and Winchcombe Eco Tubs. It's one of our most popular hot tub accessories, because not only do you have the added safety and security of a solid wooden handrail, but there's also a great storage area built into the step - ideal for stacking extra wood.

With the discount, the Supreme Steps are yours for just 286€. We only have limited stock available at this price though. So, get in touch soon, because once they're gone, they're gone. It will be like Christmas has come early for all those lucky people who get their orders in today.

As well as the discount on the Supreme step we've also extended our 78,00€ Newsletter Subscriber’s discount* until the end of 2022, which gives you an extra discount off the price of a new tub.

Relax and unwind

After a hard day at work or out walking in the woods, there's nothing more relaxing than a long soak in the hot tub. Warm, bubbling water gently soothing your aching muscles, pine cone scented wood smoke drifting through the air, and a warming glass of vin chaud. Autumn is most definitely hot tub season, and the Burford Deluxe is our very own hot tub heaven. Some of our customers definitely make the most of the peace and quiet, listening to music and even watching movies in the tub - which sounds like a great way to enhance your hot tub experience.

Hot tub cinema

Why pay to go to the cinema or sit indoors watching films on the TV when you can create your own Hot Tub Cinema in the privacy of your own garden? Creating a viewing experience in your tub is really easy if you have a mobile device, such as an iPad or Notebook, which can stream Netflix, Amazon movies, etc. If your tub is close to your home or outbuildings, you could even set up a wall-mounted tv or a projector.

I think it's a great idea for get-togethers with family and friends, a romantic night with your loved one, or even for a quiet night alone. Just like Frances from Manzac Farm who sent us this recent photo of her chilling out with a Netflix movie.
