About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Daphne Denton

I'm a music teacher and performer from Gloucestershire who has long had a love affair with France! The renovations on my longere are complete; my children and I have enjoyed it for many years and now my grandchildren love it too. Come and enjoy it as much as we do. The farmhouse and both gites together can sleep 14+, so ideal for a large family party! If you are a serious musician, we can offer you an electric piano for practice or possibly help with your music.
