Autumn in France - the beginning of the hot tub season

Is it me or does Autumn in France just seem so much better?

Back in the UK I always found it quite depressing. Autumn always seemed to me to be the season of mist, rain and mud. Everywhere you went it felt soggy and people were miserable. Summer was over, kids back at school and the next thing to look forward to was Christmas. Here in France it's 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. That doesn't mean I'm going to gate-crash the neighbour's barbeque, but we definitely need to do a bit more, and invite friends round for an aperitif or mulled wine.

The word 'fall' was widely use in England until fairly recently. It was originally a shortening of the phrase fall of the leaf, which was common in England in the 17th century. The word autumn entered the English language from the French automne and became more commonly used in the 18th century.

Forget the salads

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 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 month. But if you are a happy hot tub owner, then this season is perfect. And we have said it every year since buying our wood-burning tub, autumn is officially hot tub season.

Autumn is all about the senses

Keats called it the 'Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness'. Autumn is harvest time, leaves turning colour, darker nights, cooler temperatures and the smell of wood-smoke from the hot tub burner.


Customer review says it all

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 had two large orders delivered days apart. Good news for all our customers who had been waiting longer than normal, and great news for us. Because even though it means long days spent in the van, we get to meet the people we have been emailing with regular updates. And the best bit is seeing their happy faces and receiving wonderful reviews. I think one of the best reviews I have seen so far was from one of our most recent customers.

Took delivery yesterday of our new Burford Hydro hot tub... Showing all the restraint of a pair of spoilt two year olds we got the fire flashed up, and spent a couple hours lolling about in the tub, watching the stars come out whilst quaffing champagne. This is the ultimate expression of decadence. Had to go back and do it all again this afternoon in the rain, sans champagne. Most of this winter is going to be whiled away being philosophical whilst up to our necks in warm water. Perfect! Charlie & Sue

Bargain buys

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 we have got a few tubs still in stock. I deliberately over-ordered early this year to try and build up our stock, and these tubs are still at pre-increase prices. Plus if you order now we can deliver and install it in the next two weeks. We also have an extra delivery due in November. I ordered several tubs a couple of months ago for the autumn rush. They'll also be available at the lower price so I don't think they'll be around for long. Please get in touch if you want to take advantage of these bargain buys.

Our next delivery after that will probably be in December or January. Just think of all those cosy, romantic nights out under the stars that you will be missing out on, if you don't order your hot tub soon.

Relax and unwind

After a hard day at work or 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.
