About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Zoe Thurston-Hodge

My name is Zoe and my husband Peter and I moved from Surrey to France in 2015 with our daughter to start our new adventure. We renovated this longere for a year and a half and now enjoy renting part of the property for guests to relax and unwind in the peaceful countryside of the Charente Maritime in rural France.

Year property purchased 2015
Why this location? If you enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside then this is the property for you. Our home is in a small hamlet next to fields and woodland. However we are only a short 8 minute drive to a village called Nere for the bakers, butchers, cashpoint, pharmacy and a local bar/bistrot. For larger supermarkets 20 minutes. We are half an hour from beautiful Cognac where numerous shops, cafes and restaurants can be found.
