We are originally from the North West of the UK and made our move across to France a few years ago. We absolutely love it here and look forward to offering you a very warm 'Bienvenue' to our home.<br/><br/>Having ridden and driven to France numerous times over many years we found it difficult to find accommodation which offered garage facilities together with home from home comforts, so we had the idea of offering our guest cottage to provide both to like minded people.
