About Vivien Farraway

I grew up in North London my husband Fred in Barnet Herts we have been married for 43 years we met whilst Fred was serving in the army and in Gibraltar,We have two children Victoria our daughter Matthew our son we have seven grandchildren and one great grandson, Matthew and wife Madie and there two children live only five minutes from us. We have had an exciting life we have lived in South Africa where my parents and sisters lived for 30 years we only stayed 8 years the building industry was going into recession so it was time to leave we returned to the UK and settled in Northampton for eighteen years where I worked as a legal Librarian no it wasnt boring or dull I loved it my husband by profession is a builder as you can imagine he is great to have around all the work in the Cottage he did and its beautiful now you know a little about us we would love to get to know you so why not come stay.

Vivien Farraway purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Vivien Farraway chose Éguzon-Chantôme

We bought this property after searching the internet for possibly two years no matter where I looked I seemed always to come back to the Limousin we eventually decided yes this is what we wanted to we booked our flights and appointments with the estate agents and off we flew, it was on our last day and the very last house we saw the minute the estate agent pulled up outside i just new this was the one you know when you have that feeling, it wasnt because it was so inviting it needed lots work but Fred was a builder so we said yes this was the one, we have spent our time turning it from a house into a home so this is now our little piece of heaven

What makes this cottage unique

It was somewhere we could feel this is home somewhere where we were no longer on a treadmill a place where you had time to live and not rush from one day to the next

The house was set in the most amazing country side where places of interest are only a few km away where where we could walk and not worry about traffic speaking of traffic there isnt any traffic jams are un heard of and all the house are different

Ce gîte est un havre de paix

  • 5 of 5

Un avant goût du paradis pour ceux qui apprécie le calme et la nature. Bucolique et plein de charme, ce petit gîte nous a permis de nous ressourcer dans une région où il fait bon vivre. Nous avons pu savourer les petits plaisirs simples des joies de la vie à la campagne, la belle campagne, celle qui rappelle nos meilleurs souvenirs d'enfance.

Les hôtes, Vivien et son mari nous ont admirablement bien accueillis. Leurs efforts pour dépasser la barrière de la langue (notre anglais était aussi médiocre que leur français!) ont été propices à des moments de convivialité et prétexte à de nombreux sourires.

Discrets et chaleureux, bref... juste ce qu'il faut pour se sentir bien.

Nous les remercions de tout coeur pour leur douceur de vivre.

Seul petit bémol : le gîte manque un peu de luminosité une fois la porte fermée mais il a fait si beau que nous ne nous lassions pas du jardin.
