About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Lee Vickers

We are Lee and John. We semi retired to France last year with our four cats and two dogs. We took over Bonsentier from the previous owners and have spent the last nine months exploring the local area and improving the facilities in the gite. Bonsentier makes a great base for a relaxing sojourn in the treasures of the national parc and medieval towns. We look forward to greeting you!

Year property purchased 2017
Why this location? Our family have enjoyed holidays throughout France over the years and we have come to love this area; both for the amazing scenery and for the local villages and medieval towns. This is a wonderful area for walking, cyling, fishing and riding, whilst providing everything needed for a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Unique benefits of property Our property retains many of the original features, whilst providing everything needed for modern life. The covered seating area has its own barbecue, whilst a separate garden provides a large grassed area with picnic benches for your private use. The garden for the main house is totally separate from the gite garden therefore ensuring privacy.
