About Sharyn Hall
Sharyn and Steven Hall moved to France in November 2015 with their dog Claude. We left our Australian home of 25 years (which we built) in the Queensland countryside, where we grew bananas + other tropical fruits, made gourmet dog treats, furniture and retail shop fittings, as well as public art, sculpture and paintings. We chose Sainte Foy La Grande for its wonderful 'nearness' to daily having to drive 15 minutes for a loaf of bread for so many years, we were determined to live in a place where we could walk for everything we needed and if we couldn’t walk, take the train! Sainte Foy with its beautiful market is just the right size, big enough to have choice but small enough to still be a proper French ville. We swapped our cars for two electric bikes, and our 15 acres of isolation for a French courtyard and village life. Since moving to Sainte Foy we have been busily setting up & renovating our own home, discovering the local /regional food & wine, getting to know our ville, and also renovating the Cottage at 7. Steven is an artist & has continued his practice with renewed vigor, drawing inspiration from the beautiful scenery discovered on our frequent walks + rides along the river Dordogne. *You can see some of his paintings in the Cottage at 7, and if you are interested he will happily show you more of his work in his atelier/studio. We have spent lots of time and energy transforming the Cottage at 7 from a 'bare bones shell' to the warm & welcoming cottage it is now. With an eye for detail, we have tried to include everything we would want in a holiday home so that we can be confident our guests will enjoy a happy comfortable stay.

Mooie woning in het centrum.
Heerlijke wandelvakantie gehad. Het was na het wandelen goed thuiskomen in dit comfortabele huis. De eigenaren zijn gastvrij en vriendelijk. Alleen jammer dat er geen tuintje bij is. Maar je bent in zo'n 20 mtr bij de Dordogne. Wij waren alle dagen buiten aan het wandelen richting Santiago de Compostella.het was een prima gite voor ons. Dank je wel Sharyn.
Très bonne adresse
Logement propre, très bien placé au coeur de sainte foy la Grande. Sharyn a été très disponible et flexible. Je recommande!
Ce fut un plaisir d’accueillir Julien et sa famille... nous saluons leur retour lors de son prochain à Sainte Foy La Grande 😊
It was a pleasure to host Julien and his family...we welcome their return when next in Sainte Foy La Grande 😊
