We are an English family, with 3 young children. We currently live in London where my husband has his own building business.
I speak French and Spanish and our children are at or have been to a French nursery school - our French link is very important to us.
Anna purchased this house in 2005
Why Anna chose Voudenay
My husband and I bought the property when it was a 2 bedroomed cottage and have renovated it over the years as we wanted to be able to share our wonderful home with friends and family. We have rented other properties ourselves and were determined to make our house practical for all ages and groups whilst at the same time luxurious and comfortable with high quality furnishings, bedding etc. We want people to enjoy their holiday as much as we do each time we go there, and appreciate the area, the setting and the friendly feel to the hamlet, which we love.
What makes this house unique
We love the setting of the house - in a very friendly rural hamlet, you instantly appreciate the tranquility as soon as you arrive!
The large dining room table was a piece of wood we found in one of the barns, which we lovingly turned into a beautiful table. We have tried to keep as many original features, such as barn doors for cupboard doors and have restored many of the stone walls to make them features.
