                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: We are a family with 3 children and large extended family of cousins, aunties and uncles. Buying L'Etre Corneillet gives us the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives and is the ideal retreat for relaxing or to celebrate family occasions. We've had many memorable boules tournaments, table tennis and badminton competitions. We continue to go over to the property regularly.

                      Why the Owner Chose St. Saveur de Carrouges:
                      The house has been carefully restored to offer a true taste of French living, yet with thought given to large families staying. So lots of cooking equipment, large fridge, 2 dishwashers and plenty of games and things to do. It's relaxing and comfortable with lots of space to breathe and not be on top of one another - both inside and outside. The kids love the pool, trampoline and play areas. The adults love grabbing a book, a glass of wine and escaping in one of the hammocks dotted about the grounds!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      A private indoor heated pool means that there is always something to do, even if the weather is not favourable.
