About John & Joy McCarron
We bought this house initially as a holiday home, and have lovingly restored and modernised it over the last 6 years. This has become our main residence and we spend most of our time here, so it won't feel like a holiday gite at all. For instance one of the beds (a French Corbeille bed) was bought in a UK auction 10 years ago, and has been renovated and re-covered by us. We also have an apartment in the UK and are often here when visiting our children and 6 grand children. We are both in our early 60's non smokers and have no pets.
John & Joy McCarron purchased this House in 2012
Why John & Joy McCarron chose Le Busseau
This property is the centrepiece of the village, we see a lot of people passing by the house, many ask for directions, some just stop to admire the poppies or the wisteria, and there are often services, weddings and of course funerals at the church opposite. We are well situated for 3 popular restaurants a very local bakery, and just a few kilometres north or south to 2 good supermarkets. La Rochelle is just over an hour away, as is a number of good beaches such as La Tranche sur mer, Les Sables D'Ollonne, La Rochelle is a must to visit and now has a lovely beach at Les Minimes. We have a fabulous lake beach at Xanton Chassenon, just 20 minutes away with free parking with supervised pools for younger children. Niort 30 minutes away is a large city with a bustling market selling wonderful seafood. The place to go is you book in advance is Puy du Fou, probably one of the best themed parks in Europe. Pescalis, the fishing park has wonderful walks around the grounds even if fishing isn't your thing! Numerous weekends can be spent hunting for bargains at the Vide Greniers in neighbouring villages.
