About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Christopher Brookes

​Myself and Chris, along with our two daughters aged 7 and 11 and our 6 rescue dogs relocated to France in May 2017 with the dream of running our own gîte business and having a simpler lifestyle. Originally from Jersey in the Channel Islands, our love of France set us on a journey which eventually brought us to Creuse, often referred to as the Lake District of France.
