About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr John Allsopp

We are pensioners living in Cornwall and first visited S W France 20 years ago and have spent many holidays there since. We purchased the barns in 2004 and have filled our retirement years renovating the barns. We have four grandchildren and they love visiting the property where they have plenty outside space and river beaches and lakes to visit .
