About the Owner

Mike and I retired from teaching at the end of 2002 and moved to the property at the beginning of 2003. As an art teacher and artist Mike was drawn to the proportions of this 19th century property. For Chris it was an opportunity to continue her love of the French language. In Bournemouth we had welcomed language students into our home for a number of years.We were just continuing the work here in Normandy.

Now ten years plus later we are still going strong and have added 'The Lodge' to our accommodation, a small gite for four.

Chris now leads the local choir and I am almost free of DIY, just the green house to go!
