About judy mella
I'm a surgeon just taking early retirement from the NHS to spend more time managing our House in Chavanay and work part time for MSF. We are an Anglo-French family, the 4 children are now all adult and pursuing their own careers. We all adore our home in France which we have had for 10 years, and love sharing it with friends and family. We all love nature and the arts, and I'm planning to put in a kiln and wheel in the workshop there. When we can bear to tear ourselves away from the pool there we make jam from the fruits in season, bottle the local wine up the road ( there's a bottling device at the house), entertain friends and locals or go on a favourite walk.

Why judy mella chose Chavanay
We were planning to relocate to France as we all adore France and have many links there. We found the house whilst looking for a property and instantly fell in love with it. In fact we returned to the UK for other reasons, but ended up buying the house anyway as it is just so charming and it became our base for France. It is a house that hugs everyone who goes there, and is cosy if alone but can soak up a big family crowd with ease. the terrace lends itself to a big table of guests and long lazy lunches or meals at night under the stars. The access to nature was very important for us too, bats, deer and birds that visit the garden, and the local walking in the Pilat mountain.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Life in the house and pool terrace in particular are so relaxing... there's space for everyone whether they are playing games, painting or just relaxing. For the more active teenagers there are lots of things to do, and if there is one thing that makes it perfect as a holiday it's that there is something for everyone here whether its a digital obsessed teenager or a wine buff. As much as I love the rural life , I'd miss the city life if I didn't have access to it, and here Vienne with its cafes and markets and Roman culture is 20 minutes away , and Lyon only 35 minutes down the motorway
