About the Owner, Mrs Dawn Cater

My husband, my father and myself moved here from Berkshire in the UK in August 2014 to run our Gite business. We love France and the French people who are always so polite and friendly. We have 3 grown up children who love to visit when they can.

Why this location? There is so much to do in the local area and within close driving distance. The region is home to the second largest theme park in France, Futuroscope, which is synonymous with the moving image, offering thrill seeking attractions, interactive visits and supersize action; a fantastic day out for all. If you are an animal lover then take a trip to Monkey Valley, where you can get up close to over 400 primates as there are no cages or fences!! If sports is your thing then Saint-Cyr Park is the place for you, with a 9-18 hole golf course which has a fantastic clubhouse and restaurant, and a gorgeous lake where you can enjoy supervised swimming and a beach club for the kids in the summer; a sailing centre where you can windsurf, sail a catamaran, go waterskiing, canoeing and kayaking or enjoy paddle boats; rent a mountain bike or play beach volleyball, soccer or rugby; play football or tennis or visit the children's playground. If you love walking the area is ideal for lovely walks.
