About Karen Blanshard

We purchased the Chateau in 2003 and our children were educated in the local schools for 8 years before returning to the UK for secondary education. Our property is steeped in history, it was occupied during the 2nd world war and then liberated in 1944 and used by the US military. The property was gifted to the local church in the early 1900's and used by young priests to further their religious studies.

Karen Blanshard purchased this chateau / country house in 2003

Picturesque, with a bit of everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful surrounds. Well equipped cottage in private grounds. Great local villages with lovely restaurants, cafes, bars and shops (& sports facilities if you're feeling active).

Very relaxing to sit by the pool with a glass of wine, followed by a night of fun and laughter joining the family in their bar playing pool!! Wayne is a great barman and entertainer; Karen is a great host and cook! Will definitely go again..
