About the Owner/Advertiser, Miss Liane Edwards

We (my husband and 2 children and I) have been living in France for 11 years now. Time has flown by and it's had it's ups and downs. But, on the whole love the stress free (well, most of the time) way of life and the fact the children are bi-lingual. We grow a lot of our own vegetables and have many fruit trees which we never did/had before moving here which we love also.

Year property purchased 2006
Why this location? We chose this location due to it's easy access to major routes, close to a lively, small town and within easy reach of England. We love living in the countryside, so this is ideal for us, although it's only a stone's throw from all amenities and lots of lovely places to visit.
Unique benefits of property Set in 2 acres of grounds, we are rural, yet not remote. It's only 3 miles to all the local amenities. A safe place for children to run around it and plenty to do at the gite. Ideal for large families or several families wanting to holiday together.

We had a wonderful week at the gite. Chance to relax in lovely surroundings - peaceful and quiet but close to local amenities. The teenagers particularly enjoyed the pool! Thank you!

Owner response

Thank you soooo much, we loved having you! Next time we'll get the children together for a 'gig'!

Property was exactly as photos shown and description given. Gite is full of character, situated in a very peaceful setting, yet local amenities only 5 minute drive away. Owners are wonderful people, discreet but there for advice and offer plenty information on local attractions. Outside pool is perfectly maintained and cleaned every day before you wake up! So much free area to run around, play ball games, ldeal for all ages, our children did not want to leave and neither did we! Come home completely relaxed, will be booking again for certain.

Owner response
