About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Julie Rowley

We moved to France in 2007, from the Yorkshire Dales, with our daughter and created our gite complex from scratch! We live on site and renovated an old cottage and converted a barn into 2 more gites - it's very quiet at Tranquille Vienne!

Year property purchased 2007
Why this location? At the time it was an up and coming area with the tourism increasing - also the warmer climate and good airport links.
Unique benefits of property It's quiet here. Fully equipped gites popular with couples and families.
