The property is located in a very attractive area of France and easily accessible by car from the UK. Driving time is between 4 and 5 hours from Calais. My late husband and I shared an interest in wines and we are surronded by vineyards with lots of interesting cellars to visit. It is an area little known by the Brits.
We completely renovated the property and it is well appointed and very comfortable. This is an interesting area and you can fish in the river on the other side of the road whilst your companions watch on the terrace (with a glass of local wine(?). There are local markets close by on certain days of the week.
