The double height conservatory is a great place to relax, eat breakfast or play cards, the patio gives mountain views as does the balcony and many windows. The garden is in full sun with a swimming pool, set in a beautiful, lit deck and patio; sit in a rocking chair for coffee or laze around on a sun lounger. Eat al fresco and enjoy the views.

Andy & I have a busy teenage boy, I work in high tech augmented intelligence & robotics and Andy runs his own business converting vans to campers and also does high end retail fit outs. I read avidly and could watch The Thomas Crown Affair over & over. We love relaxing here in France with water sports & skiing. I have traveled to over 40 countries! France is magical among those. Life is an adventure, kindness is a super power.
