About Mrs. J Huston
After many years of traveling and latterly working in Geneva, we chose this area as we loved France and the variety of life. Our location gives us easy access to all directions, transportation local and international, tranquility and a home to share with our many visitors friends and family.
Mrs. J Huston purchased this farmhouse in 1989
Why Mrs. J Huston chose Tulette
We had friends in this area who also had children of the same age. We looked for something to give us the peace of the countryside, but easy access to cultural activities, markets, and all that we love about France.
What makes this farmhouse unique
Our views from every window are spectacular at all times of year. The bare vines and trees in winter are beautiful, the autumn colors surround us with a golden glow, spring brings the freshness of the vines coming alive once again and summer the warmth and beauty of outdoor living.
