Our emblem, a nice story !!!!
As you can see over the last 20 years as well as today our logo depicts a goose in flight. More precisely it depicts a Canada Goose.
The story of the Domaine de Vaugouard’s Goose…
It all started 20 years ago, when a former Director of the Domaine returned from a trip to Canada with a couple of young Canada Geese.
You can guess the rest of the story…
his couple of geese reproduced and goslings were born and they in turn reproduced.
All these Canada Geese decided to remain on our greens, ponds and thickets, never to migrate again and reproduced consistently by the hundreds.
Over time, they started to migrate again and our Canada Geese stopped over on our greens at the start of every winter before heading to warmer southern climates.
Some of them still reproduce on the Golf Course.
If you play golf whilst staying here, you will most certainly see them calmly waddling around the fairways, never frightened by the golfers or even the golf balls occasionally brushing against them.
You can now understand why the Canada Goose was chosen as the emblem of the Domaine which has adopted and welcomed them.
Thus our logo was not chosen by chance, quite the opposite …
And it will not change … although for some time, some splendid and majestic swans have also elected residence on our ponds to reproduce. But changing the logo, that’s another story.
