About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Barnaby Atkinson

We are Barnaby and Susan and we love our home in France and hope that you will too. We enjoy cooking, so the kitchen is very well equipped. We love walking, skiing and rugby. We have spent many happy holidays at our home in France including Christmas and New Year where we have enjoyed hosting many of our friends. Renovating the house and garden has been a labour of love.

Year property purchased 2004
Why this location? We chose this house as it was in the centre of a quiet village which has an excellent village boulangerie, bar and mini supermarket which means that when we have visited for short breaks we don't have to go far to get our provisions. We also liked the surrounding towns and villages and have lots to keep us occupied without having to travel too far inculding Chateux, zoos, swimming pools, lakes and kayaking.
Unique benefits of property Our property is large and comfortably sleeps a minimum of 12 people. The kitchen is a 'cooks kitchen' and very well equipped.
