About Anita Oerlemans
I was born in Dongen, in the Netherlands. My husband lived in Casablanca, Maroc, until he was 24 years old. We met at a festival in ‘s Hertogenbosch, were he visited his sister. Half a year later, we married and went to live in Veghel. That was in June 1993. Our son was born five years later.
Anita Oerlemans purchased this house in 2010
Why Anita Oerlemans chose Urçay
It always was our dream to own a house in France, but it seemed to stay a dream forever, as we didn't have the money to buy one. During the years of our marriage, we did build up some savings for the down payment of the mortgage on our Dutch home. But only after we inherited a small sum from my mother, the dream became more realistic. On our holidays, we visited many properties in various parts of France, but every time there was 'a little something about it:'. Until we found the Urçay villa. This was love at first sight and we said to eachother: “It's now or never, the Dutch mortgage can wait”. But the real-estate broker told us that the house was promised to another family. We were so sad the whole long way home! A week later she called us to let us know that they didn’t want to purchase it after all. You can imagine our happiness! With an additional loan, we managed to meet all costs and a month later, we went to France again to sign the property papers. Since then, we made many improvements to satisfy our guests. And we will continue to do so, as things can always be made even better!
What makes this house unique
L'Ocee is ideal for those who value peace, calm, privacy and nature. The friendly green hills of the centre of France and the Tronçais forest with its many lakes and art put a spell on us. We love to scroll the countryside and to visit the many picturesque castles and villages. Or to follow the river Cher or the Berry canal, by foot, bicycle, canoe or electric boat. Back home at L'Ocee, sitting on the terrace, viewing the birds and the butterflies crossing the green flowery field, feels priceless. After a swim in the private pool and a home cooked meal, we spend the evening playing pool, darts, air hockey or table tennis in the basement. The night comes as dark as you´ve never experienced it, with myriads of stars. The silence makes you sleep sound and deep....
