About Ms Marion Wilkinson

We moved to France from UK and bought this beautiful but derelict manor house.

Ms Marion Wilkinson purchased this house in 1989

Why Ms Marion Wilkinson chose Pluméliau

Despite it's run-down appearance and wildly overgrown land it had such character and a sense of tranquility. We immediately felt at home
