Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: I am a single mum, with two great girls aged 10 & 118. I run an ecommerce selling produce from over 100 local suppliers.

Why the Owner Chose Moyon, France:
I came to France when I was 24 and saw this house near the village of Moyon and fell in love with it. We moved here in the September of 1995, and gradually began converting one of the barns. Now 17 years later, we are still working on improvements on the property, all though finally most of that is actually happening on the main house.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I fell in love with this area on my first visit to Bayeux and that was the basis of our search for a new home. We are very well located for visiting the local sites. We are equi-distant to most of them, such as Bayeux, Granville, Cherbourg, Mont St Michel. There is also a very lively music scene locally, which never fails to surprise people.
