About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Stephen Clemo

I moved to France in 2014 & have been offering B&B in my renovated farmhouse since 2017, recently receiving a rating of 9.6 out of 10 from booking.com. The farmhouse & newly completed gite sit on a 2 hectare plot. It's a very peaceful location with views over the surrounding countryside. I also work part-time as an estate agent & have hosted many visitors looking to buy a property in France who have benefited from my knowledge & experience in real estate and the local area.
