About the Owner
I live in England with my husband, two children, and our dog 'Trouble'. We have had several very happy holidays in France and all love the sense of freedom and tranquility the house offers. We are regularly joined by friends and their children during our stay at the house as there is plenty of room for us all and we can even find a quiet corner if needed.

During the summer there is always something going on in the towns and villages including festivals, open air concerts, and various fairs.”
