About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Sandra Jordan

Roger, Sandra and Chris moved to France towards the end of 2016, for a new adventure.<br/>​<br/>Roger and Sandra moved to France for a change in Lifestyle, wanted to escape the rat race and desk jobs. So since we enjoyed France and had many family holidays with Chris and Sarah our children we decided to take the plunge and move to France permanently. Chris came with us to carry on his farming career in France.<br/><br/>We have a small holding on-site, with hens, pigs, sheep, goats & turkeys.

Year property purchased 2016
Why this location? We wanted to live in rural France and since Chris was coming with us it is good for agriculture. We have plenty of walks/cycling routes from the property. Lakes about 50 minutes away, Futuroscope about an hour away, La Vallée des Singes is about an hour and 20 minutes away, great day out for all the family. We would also be good for people travelling up and down France as it is a lovely spot to break the journey.
Unique benefits of property Self contained, spacious, use of unheated pool, parking.
