Meet the Owners

My husband, Bill and I are from Daws Heath  in Essex. We have spent 12 years restoring the main house, Chez Dauve,  to its former glory. A beautiful and imposing 18th century farm house. The large stone barn adjoining the farmhouse was used for storage and had been neglected over the years. We decided to convert the barn and completed this in 2012. 

We did all the work ourselves and have had great fun and shed blood, sweat and tears in our effort to create our little piece of heaven in France.

We decided to offer the gite as a holiday let for just a few weeks each year mainly during the summer Months. 

We will be on hand during the whole of your stay and find this works well. The house and barn are sufficiently far apart to afford you complete privacy.

We hope you will consider spending your holiday with us this year and welcome any questions you may have. We work hard towards offering you a pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable time and take pride in the level of comfort and amenities we offer.

Our quest is to ensure your stay is thoroughly enjoyable enabling you to relax in carefree and comfortable home from home.

We are  both keen cooks and offer a range of meals should you decide to take some time off from cooking yourselves.


Thank you for looking at our website!
