About Mrs Lynn Birtles

Lynn and Duncan have been living in France for 12 years and run a b&b in their 18th century watermill. A former vehicle inspector and university administrator who have no regrets about jumping across the Channel to start a new venture.

Mrs Lynn Birtles purchased this chateau / country house in 2003

Why Mrs Lynn Birtles chose Seine-Maritime

The countryside is lovely and peaceful. It is within easy access of motorways and only an hour and a half from Calais. It is a pleasure to drive on roads uncluttered by cars and traffic jams, through lovely villages.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Many interesting places to visit - too many for one week. Half of the one hundred or more gardens in Normandy are to be found in this department. The mill is in an idyllic and peaceful location. It is our corner of paradise.
