What is the Origin of the name Relay de la Source?

The story of Relay de la Source begins in February 2014: we were looking for property in the countryside suitable for horses. By chance we came across La Solissonniere, we fell head over heels in love with it (in French- a coup de Coeur).

6 months later we resumed the gîte lettings. We were already considering a renovation program for the following season. On the other hand, the name change couldn’t wait. The old name of “Clef des Chouans” didn’t appeal to us as it is based on a historical error, being an amalgam of the Breton (the famous Chouans) and the Vendéens.

Brainstorming session

We started from scratch ! For the new name, we needed to find key words evocative of the site for our future guests. We started thinking in terms of strengths :

A name soon revealed itself. The Source (and its verb “ressourcer”) evoke at the same time rest, peacefulness and nature. As for the Deux Lay, they occur in the English word Relay.

Why this spelling ?

  1. The word relais in French is well used on the web.
  2. Spelling of river names is maintained
  3. The name is also understandable for our English friends, and we love to welcome them !
  4. Finally Relay through history has been indicative of a resting place for travellers, and we love history in all forms.

The Relay of the Source was born : are you fond of history and heritage? Do you love nature and animals? Are you an active individual looking for adventure in beautiful surroundings ? Welcome to your 2nd home.
