About Mrs Benedicte Pullen

I was born in Geneva where I lived until I married my English husband and moved to the UK in 1989.

I am a holistic beauty therapist and enjoy working in my beautiful treatment room, overlooking the garden, in the main house on the property.

Mrs Benedicte Pullen purchased this apartment in 1992

Why Mrs Benedicte Pullen chose Andover

We fell in love with the property at first sight - it was a bright sunny day in May and we immediately felt at home (and so did our dog, at the time!). We were seduced by the seclusion of the vast garden (very neglected) and the charm of the old house ( in need of complete refurbishment) - it all had huge potential. As a bonus, the property was so easy to access from any direction and so convenient for Heathrow or London, either by road or rail.

Twenty-five years on, the house had to be totally re-built following a catastrophic fire in 2005, so it still looks a bit new, but it mellows gradually and will regain its old charm eventually. The garden offers a wonderful sense of space and seclusion that most people describe as peaceful - it features a large pond (in place of a derelict tennis court) often visited by wild ducks and geese, depending on the time of year.

We love the property more than ever and equally love the beautiful surrounding region with so much to see and visit - we hope you will come to share both with us.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the sense of seclusion offered by the garden and the surrounding trees, but particularly appreciate the central position of the property and its ease of access from any direction.

The property is completely secure, behind closed gates, and there is ample parking space.

Well appointed apartment near a lovely village

  • 4 of 5

Although we did not have much interaction with our hosts, it is clear that they have thoughtfully furnished their rental to take care of every need. As a cook, I especially appreciated that the kitchen, though small, had everything needed to fix our meal. We chose this rental due to its convenient location not too far from Stonehenge and Salisbury. As it turns out, the nearby village appears to be quite charming as well. The owner's property is beautiful, and we did take the time to stroll around before heading on our way.

Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5

This little studio loft gives you the comfort and privacy and luxury that far exceeds a hotel room. The kitchen was well equipped and I was able to cook a 3 course meal and everything finished to a high quality. The dining facilities were full size and the bed very comfortable. We took a walk around the village and through the owners extensive garden and enjoyed the birdsong and rural setting of a quaint English village. The bed was comfy with plenty of pillows and extra blankets. It would be hard to criticise anything about this property or the hospitality of Roger and Benedicte. Maybe a little personal feedback would be that we would have preferred a double quilt instead of two singles and a sofa instead of two armchairs. Also while cooking something to keep me company such as a small TV or radio but this is purely personal and not essential.
