Owner info

Year Purchased: 1830

About the owner: I am the fourth generation of my family to live in this house. I arrived in St. Martin in 1939 where I lived the war as a child. It has been the family home ever since. My mother was born in the house and lived in it for 91years after my grandparents and great-grandparents passed it on to her. All this to give an idea of the affection I have for this estate.

Why the Owner Chose Bernay-Saint-Martin, France:
In order to keep it in shape (as I don´t live here anymore) and to ensure its maintenance, I thought it might be best for me to allow such a house to be shared with enthusiasts at least during the holidays.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The peace of the countryside. The manor´s retro family atmosphere links itself well with the comfort of a modern equipment. The situation is little known, but it is ideal for those who seek close tourist attractions (within an hour drive). The availability and kindness of the housekeepers.
