This is my former home. I now live in central London but spend as much time as I can here.
Mr Fraser purchased this chateau / country house in 1993
Why Mr Fraser chose Loir-et-Cher
I bought this home to live in when I worked in the near by town of Blois. It is a very unusual and attractive location, which I am very attached to. It has been rated at the 4 star level under the new government standard for furnished holiday homes.
