We arrived in France from Jersey, in 1999 settling in a small cottage. We then decided to find a larger premises to start self-catering holiday lets. We bought in 2004 renovated and began letting.

HAZEL BAILEY purchased this barn in 2004

Why HAZEL BAILEY chose Challain-la-Potherie

The property being situated within the Loire Valley gives us a wonderful climate, always a degree or two above elsewhere. We are surrounded by large towns from 45 minutes to 1 hour away, and about 3½ hours to Paris, and in open countryside. We are close to St Malo so that day trip are possible to Jersey .

Lovely local villages weekly markets.

What makes this barn unique

We think that it is very important having a large play area for the children. This gives the children time to play and explore leaving the parents to relax and not worry. They can also fish, whether an experienced fisherman or amateur its all good fun.

And guaranteed to catch a fish , Mostly Carp
