John and I used to take regular holidays in France, usually in Normandy but sometimes further south in wine tasting regions!. We loved the more relaxed pace of life and the feeling of space you find here and the polite, friendliness of the French people. We formulated a loose five year plan to sell up in England and move to France permanently. After two years, we couldn't remember what we were waiting for and put our house on the market!

We moved over in May 2010 and found this property quite quickly and by the end of July we had moved in! The house had been empty and unloved for over three years, so we spent the first eighteen months putting some character and love back into it, until we had something we were happy to rent out to others. We also started work on converting the barn next door into our home. It is an ongoing project and we are continually looking at ways we can make your holiday experience more perfect.

We love our little part of the Haute Vienne, the tranquillity and peace is unbeatable. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. We live next door in the barn so are always around to answer any questions, cook you a meal or just to share a glass of wine!
