About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Nicholas Christodoulou

Hi, I'm an architect/designer and musician. Love all aspects of the arts and music. Of Greek Cypriot descent so I've always had a fascination for Europe and travelling. Was always was attracted to France, for its food and lifestyle.

Year property purchased 1989
Why this location? Fell in love with La Roche Bernard, the river and the nearby coast. It basically ticked all the boxes as well as Brittany having it's own proud identity. It was also near enough for travelling regularly from England.
Unique benefits of property It's private location, and the countryside surrounding it, yet near all amenities and activities.

We had a wonderful stay. The gite was as good as it looks in the photos and there is a local English concierge who was great. The living room cupboard was stuffed with board games, they had English Sky TV & even left us a folder with list of market days and local things to do. Within 20 minutes drive there were several local market towns, some with harbours and boat trips/fishing and a choice of beaches. The local sea food was amazing! The only thing my husband and son missed was the wifi, but we were aware that there wasn't any well before we went!! We would definitely go again!!!
