About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Elly Budgen-Jones

My husband and I moved to France in 2011 with our 2 boys who were then 10 and 3 years old. My husband has worked in the UK for the past 3 years and I have continued to work in France as a painter and decorator and dance fitness instructor. Both our boys are now bilingual and our eldest is now studying back on the UK. This year we have decided to return to the UK and are therefore renting out our home as a gite for others to benefit from. A great place to wine, dine and relax!
