About the Owner
About Lynn Saunders
Myself and my partner have two children and a holiday home in South West France near Bordeaux. We're looking to rent the property when we aren't there.
My partner runs his own finance business and I take care of the house and children. We have a black Labrador called Chaser who is, as you can imagine, adored by the kids.
I like travel and eating out, particularly with friends.
