Vive la difference - Wessex Gite brings a touch of France!
Published on 02/02/2012

Wessex is creating a brand new dimension to the UK leisure lodge industry by introducing the spirit of France to the UK’s holiday parks and bringing holidaying abroad much closer to home. Read more.. (takes them to a new news page containing the attached information)

Wessex, one of the most innovative lodge manufacturers in the UK, is launching a unique and sophisticated French-style leisure lodge on Valentine’s Day.

The Wessex Gite was inspired by Wessex managing director Jon Day’s family trip to the French holiday island of Ile de Re in the summer.

Jon left for a holiday for a week in August and came back with an exciting new concept, never before seen on the UK market.

“Our holiday home on Ile de Re had charm, elegance and sophistication. But it was unfussy and natural too. From the minute you walked in the door, you felt you were on holiday and I knew it was something we had to recreate at home, something the market here missed but really could enjoy,” said Jon.

Jon expects, because of the innovative holiday home atmosphere and a competitive price tag, the Wessex Gite will be of particular appeal to the rental market – and give the market a welcome boost.

He said: “The Wessex Gite’s got all the luxury and design elegance you’d expect from a Wessex but it’s not designed to feel home-from-home like most of our other models.

“It's unmistakably somewhere where you get away from it all. It's got a holiday feel. And you can’t help but leave your day-to-day stresses at the door.

“It will be something very different from everything on the market right now. And it’ll be good for consumers and for business.”

The Wessex Gite will be launched at the Motorhome, Caravan and Camping Show at London Excel on 14 February. For more information, call the Wessex office on 01258 860455.

Parks who’ve already bought the homes include The Dream Lodge Group, who will be joining the Excel platform with Wessex, and will have the Wessex Gite available on all of their nine parks.

The Dream Lodge Group is offering people who buy the Gite on their parks a guaranteed 8% return on investment for three years - an unmatchable offer in the market right now.
