  • Description


    Hello! Myself and my husband moved to France nearly 5 years ago ,we have friends/family nearby.
    We do speak a little French and I am keen to learn much more.
    Last year I had a baby daughter who is now 10 months old and super sweet.
    As well as us there are, 1 cat,2 donkeys,1 dog and chickens and ducks and 2 shetland ponies.
    The property sits on a 75 acre plot, comprising of 2 houses,barns,outbuildings 2 large fields that are cut for hay each year,forest, and a 3 acre lake with carp and other fish in.
    My hobbies include gardening and animals, I am keen to keep horses at a later stage. The lake will be available to anyone who likes fishing on their time out.The property is quiet and peaceful, with many trees.
    Our main house will offer comfortable accomodation we have geothermic central heating,and our guest has their own bathroom/toilet/room.
    Our 3 acre fishing lake may attract the keen fisherman and will be available to fish, for our guest.

    We are currently looking for on-going help and going on into winter, the house has central Heating and is warm right through the winter.
    We would consider a long term stay for the right person who is both French/English speaking and has a strong interest in animals/nature/gardening and enjoys being outside.
    The property/grounds are large.
