About Kevin Jones

My name is Kevin Jones and I live in France with my wife Nikki and 3 children. The family decided to move away from UK for a change in culture and better weather. The region is a great place to bring up children with the education being second to none. You will have an excellent time in the cottage and private gardens within the 800 year old chateau grounds. Very peaceful and quiet for that ideral holiday relaxation.

Kevin Jones purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Kevin Jones chose Aquitaine

The lovely weather with easy access to the mountains, sea and Spain. Buitiful countryside.
