About Ann Gorvett

We moved to Chez Jabier, a tranquil hamlet in Central France in October 2005. Our dream to have a gite business here, 8.5years on our dream is finally a reality. It's been a long road getting here as we bought a house that needed renovating before we could start on anything else, every step has brought us closer to the dream. We are here now and it's all been worth it.

We hope that you will appreciate our fantastic piece of paradise as much as we do.

Ann Gorvett purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Ann Gorvett chose Saint-Priest-la-Marche

We had been house hunting for a while in this particular region, it's so unspoilt and beautiful,when we came across this gem , we fell in love with the welcoming ambiance of the house & the beautiful countryside views instantly. Added to that was the warm welcome from the locals.

What makes this cottage unique

It is wonderful to sit with a glass of local wine when our daughter is in bed & watch swallows & bats swooping over the countryside whilst looking up into the sea of stars, there are no street lights here and therefore it's wonderful for star gazers.. We love the country walks just outside our door , here you stop the car for deer ,pheasant , boar and other wildlife that cross the road. Here it is like the UK maybe 60-70 years ago , a time warp where life is at a relaxed pace. Walking & cycling is a delight in the virtually traffic free lanes & paths around Chez Jabier. Everything about living here is just perfect.

Séjour au lavender Cottage d'une semaine

Séjour au lavender Cottage d'une semaine
  • 4 out of 5
Nous sommes très satisfaits de notre séjour au Lavender Cottage.
C'est une maison qui allie calme, netteté, fonctionnalité au charme des cottages anglais et des vieilles maisons berrichonnes.
Nos hôtes ont le sens du service. Ils nous ont orientés vers des lieux de visite très intéressants comme le chateau de Boussac (à proximité), le parc des loups à Guéret, la visite de la ville de La Châtre...De la documentation est disponible dans le cottage.
Les amateurs de Tati apprécieront particulièrement la visite du lieu consacré à "Jour de fête" tourné à Ste Sévère (à 10 kms). De quoi se régaler!
Nous et nos 2 fils de 14 et 16 ans, avons passé une très bonne semaine au calme et au vert sans manquer de centres d'intérêt d'une part et de disponibilité de nos hôtes (si nécessaire) d'autre part.
un grand merci à eux!

Fabulous property in an idyllic location

  • 5 out of 5
We were drawn to Lavender Cottage as they were able to accommodate our young dog, had a pool, UK television and also broadband.
Each and every box ticked but we were not expecting the wonderful welcome and hospitality from both Tony & Ann.
The gite is spotlessy clean, with all amenities you can ever need, the comfort and decor were an absolute credit to this couple who have poured their heart and soul into creating holiday accommodation to be very proud of.
Add to that the well kept gardens and pool this is genuinely a gem of a place, and I'm not sure they realise how good it is.
I would hope that any future guests would not be concerned about their hosts residing next door, there is no need to be, Tony & Ann are there to be called on with advice on places to visit, but discrete and keep a distance if that is what's preferred. Engage with them, they are charming and we spent a couple of sunny afternoons with them in the garden.

Séjour parfait au gîte du lavande

  • 5 out of 5
Séjour d'une semaine idéal au gîte du lavande avec nos 2 enfants de 3 et 4 ans. Gîte très propre avec tout le nécessaire pour passer de bonnes vacances.
Calme, reposant, pas trop loin de sites intéressants : châteaux, lac, ..., piscine et jardin agréables, tout est à disposition et si il manque la moindre chose nous pouvions compter sur la gentillesse et la disponibilité d'Ann, Tony et Zoe.
Merci encore à eux pour cet excellent séjour passé chez eux.
