It’s a big house half of which we can live in and the other half is being totally renovated ....I call it the Adams family house but people who visit love it and it has a real charm. It has a very happy feel to it .

Escape to the chateau have expressed an interest on us being on the tv . I really need reliable people who knows what they are doing . So you might end up on the telly !!!!
