About Hazel Feeney
I have lived and worked in England, Taiwan, Pakistan and Mexico but I still love France the most! Chambon, the location of my gite, provides a quiet and friendly hamlet in which I can work and relax. I have converted a local barn into a studio in which I make ceramic sculptures, vessels and bowls. I return to the UK frequently to deliver my artwork to galleries and to see my son and daughter. I am very lucky to be surrounded by such beautiful countryside with delicious wine, cheese and French bread only minutes away!
Hazel Feeney purchased this House in 1991
Why Hazel Feeney chose Chambon
Les Trois Puits was derelict when purchased - it was last used by the French Resistance Fighters in World War Two - but it was immediately obvious it had wonderful potential. It took nine years to restore it to its original, rustic charm. In 2001 it was advertised with owners direct as their 4th French property-FR4! The reasons why we bought Les Trois Puits: my family fell in love with La Rochelle, only a 30 minutes' drive away. Les Trois Puits is in the second sunniest part of France - only the Riviera has more hours of sunshine per year. It is easily accessible, with La Rochelle airport only a 35 minute drive, the ferry port of St Malo a manageable four-hour drive, and the Eurostar now running from St Pancras to La Rochelle/Surgeres with only one change in Paris.
What makes this House unique
Les Trois Puits is close to the beautiful beaches of La Rochelle and Chatelaillon but also situated in the heart of the French countryside. In May the fields are full of pale lilac poppies and in June/July, the most amazing sunflowers. The surrounding countryside is perfect for walking, bird watching and cycling. Outdoor swimming pools are located within ten minutes drive in Surgeres and Aigrefeuille. The local boulangerie will deliver what ever you request - fresh bread, croissants, pains au chocolat-to the kitchen window! The walled garden provides a sun trap and many visitors to Les Trois Puits have commented that the stars are spectacular!
