About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Caroline Burton-Williams

I retired to France with my husband Chris 15 years ago. We adore the French way of life, food and wine. I previously worked for British Airways for 20 years. We have renovated our home and have decided that it would be kind to let others experience what living in France attracted us so much.

Year property purchased 2004
Why this location? We are very well located here. It takes 50 mins to get to Bordeaux Cognac, Angouleme, and Saintes. There are beautiful beaches 45 mins away. Beautiful golf courses and wonderful lakes.
Although we are rural we are not isolated. The area has alot of history and the little villages and churches are very picturesque.
Unique benefits of property Our property has been renovated for socialising. The vast kitchen/dining area/lounge enables families and friends to be together without feeling claustrophobic. It is a very happy place and benefits from the pool area/eating area to become part of the house.
Having said that, there is also a lounge for getting away and having a quiet time.
We do live on-site so we can be as available or unavailable as you like.
