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 2002

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.
