About the Owner

Sandra & Alun Jones

We have lived here in France for 12 and love the peace and quiet of our home which is situated in a small Hamlet of St Crepin de Richemont. We chose this

place as we are 5 mins from the beautiful market town of Brantome, also called the Venice of the Perigord.

Brantome is a bustling little town throughout the season. We enjoy meeting our guests some of which

have come back over the years and we have formed

friendships and spent some delightful times sharing

a glass of wine and chatting about the area which is

truly beautiful.

From the Owner

Our house suits us because it is divided into two apartments. We live in the larger one on the first floor and the smaller apartment is used for family and friends and our guests. That way everyone has their own space. We love sitting round the pool in summer and eating outside with the beautiful views and the fresh clean air. We can walk directly into the woods and down into the main area of St Crepin de Richemont plus the Chateau de Richemont is 5 mins walk away.
