About Michael Richardson
Michael and Gaile bought this wonderful house fifteen years ago. Since then we have made it available to rent during the summer season (end May - mid Sept) . We are so pleased that it has proved so popular ,both with guests from the U.K. and much further afield. It is amazing to reflect that over 2000 people have enjoyed a holiday here,and since everyone seemed very happy, we are proud of that. We came from a catering background before we retired, so like to think that we run a good ship! We try to maintain the property to a high standard,and are always trying to improve the facilities on offer. We are also very pleased to welcome back some of our clients who have visited us previously. The house has been fully booked for the last eight years,and offers a private/secluded family break.Run the slideshow,and at the end wait for the video to come up!
Michael Richardson purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2002
