We both spent most of our lives in the big, bustling city of Bristol. Simon working as a plumber and I as a school teacher. I was brought up bilingual as my father was Belgian and we wanted our children to speak French and be able to speak to their Belgian cousins easily. So over one Christmas dinner we decided to take the leap, taking our two boys out of their large, city schools and settled into village life in the sunny Charente Maritime.
From the moment we drove up the drive, we fell in love with the space and freedom that came with the house and its' 3 acres of land. Simon had always dreamed of owning a sit-on mower! The main house is a typical stone, country house with large rooms for us all to run around in. Then we discovered a number of out-buildings which we knew we would be able to convert into some fantastic gites. An exciting project for us to get our teeth into.
The tranquility and peace surrounds you as soon as you arrive at The Orchard Gites. Birds fly overhead, vineyards a-plenty and space as far as the eye can see. The Orchard itself was another one of the main features we fell in love with here, it is abundant in fruits from apples and peaches to mirabelles and cherries and we spend hours pouring over recipes to turn our pickings into delicious, potted delicacies.
