About Mrs Jane Brisker-Jones and Mr Lee Jones
My Husband and I lived in Staffordshire until July 2016 when we made the decision the move to France for good, so we now live next door and will be on hand if need be, it has always been our dream to live here and hopefully any visitors will enjoy it as we do. We have bought our dog and cat with us and we have our growing family over when they can. We hope to have many happy years here and look forward to welcoming our holiday guests.
Mrs Jane Brisker-Jones and Mr Lee Jones purchased this Farmhouse in 2005
Why Mrs Jane Brisker-Jones and Mr Lee Jones chose Neuvy-Bouin
We purchased the house for our parents to spend most of their retirement in and for our future retirement, the area is so quiet and relaxing, we always felt fully recharged when it was time to go back to England, but now we just enjoy our life here. Its not to far from all the facilities and amenities you need and the few neighbours in the Hamlet are really friendly.

Fantastic holiday home. Very clean, comfortable, well equipped, had everything we needed. Great pool and garden. The owners live next door and they are lovely people who were more than willing to help if we needed anything but were never invasive.
Great location. Plenty to see and do. We'll definitely be back and thoroughly recommend this place!
Thank you for your lovely review and we look forward to seeing you again.
