Unique benefits of Les Sarrazinies - fishing in the lake (catfish broke a 20lb line recently) - live camera feed to nesting barn owls - deep shaft in the woods used by French resistance - use of herb garden.

About the owners: Lindy and I were not actually house hunting when the agent took us to see Les Sarrazinies - merely practising for a time in the future. We met outside the village church and found ourselves driving up the properties wooded avenue before emerging on the brow of a hill next to the 18th C. farmhouse. As we stepped out of the car and looked 300 metres down the lawns to the lake and on into the woods, we were completely blown away by the sheer beauty and tranquility of the place.
Without even going into the buildings, we know we had found the right property and fast tracked our retirement . Since acquiring Les Sarrazinies in 2001, we have updated the cottages - originally barns and rooms for smoking hams and roasting chestnuts.
Visitors return time and again and have become friends.
