John and Wendy live on site at La Bouillatrie in our small converted barn. John grew up in Somerset and Wendy on the Isle of Wight. We left Somerset in 2004 to start a new life in France, John worked long hours in the animal feed industry and Wendy was an accountancy assistant for a large company.
Mrs Wendy Fellenor purchased this farmhouse in 2004
We fell in love with La Bouillatrie before we entered the house, it is in a lovely setting on a quiet country road. We have converted the original farmhouse into 3 gites but retained many of the original features.
The house has excellent views, we are surrounded by fields and have no neighbours. The swimming pool, which we installed ourselves, is south facing and very secure, we pride ourselves on being very child friendly.
on arrival the hosts john and wendy had prepared our group of six a bbq as were quite late getting there and very tired after the ride down from calais. this was the start to a most wonderful week in a beautiful area with everything you should need. i cant speak highly enough about the hosts nothing was ever to much trouble for them and it felt like we were part of the family.
we shall return as soon a we can and thats the best review i can give
