                              Year Purchased: 2004

                              About: A European with French citizenship, I was born and brought up in Kenya. As a teenager, I lived in Austria and have spent the last 30 years in London. I set up my internationally based business, The Daylight Company, in 1990 and now aim to spend much of my time in France. I am fluent in English, French, German and Spanish.

                              Why Le Fousseret:
                              I've always regarded France as home so it felt natural for me to find a house here. I fell in love with the chateau when I first saw it. It evoked childhood memories of rambling family houses and lazy childhood summers. Perhaps because much of my life has been spent in different places, I always regarded France as the nearest thing to home. All my childhood holidays were spent with my family in France and my brother and sister both have houses there (my brother lives next door) so it was natural for me to find a home in France. Magnificent views of the Pyrenees coupled with the warmth of the local population make this an idyllic place to relax.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                              Castelnau has the gift of making all those who visit feel comfortable and relaxed. Its splendid location is impressive. The front of the house is positioned in the heart of the hamlet, the rear looks out onto private meadows, forest and mountains. It offers tranquility and seclusion for a memorable holiday, a retreat or a special family event. The interior of the house is original and fun to explore.
