About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Dorn Kipping

Hello, I'm a working mother and myself and my hubby bought this property when we saw it and fell in love with it :)<br/>Over the years, we have lovingly restored it and made it into a holiday home we hope people would like to stay in and come back to again and again.<br/><br/>It's a gorgeous property and modern inside whilst retaining that French 'je ne sais quoi' that we all would like to know and love ;)

Year property purchased 2007
Why this location? We have visited a lot of areas in France and feel that Desertines, France is a lovely, rural location with a lot of friendly people, a place to relax and enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle. It is an ideal location for the best of both worlds; when you want to go and explore busy bustling towns or quiet countryside, then come back and chillax.
Unique benefits of property It offers the best of both worlds - a lovely rural location in quiet countryside and not far from lively pubs and restaurants and market villages and towns.
