                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1999

                      About the owner: I am an American that lived in London, England for 4 years and feel in love with France. I have owned and loved the West Mill for over a decade and it is my home away for home. My two children both speak French and enjoy it with me. I current live in Falls Church, Virginia in the Washington DC area.

                      Why the Owner Chose St.-Jean-du-Gard:
                      Everyone falls in love with the 'situation' of this property. A historic stone water mill on the river. For me this is my favorite place on earth. I bought the property without seeing the inside because when I stood by the river I feel in love. I have spent many years renovating the property from new pool, new roof, new electricity and continue to make major improvements on an annual basis.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      You are steps from the river. You feel like the whole world is yours because you do not see any neighbors on this large property and you can enjoy nature all around you. You also are just minutes for some wonderful unspoiled small French towns. If you are lucky you might see the farmer across the river walking his goat in the morning sun - a true escape from the city to the peace of the French country side and beautiful nature.
