About Corinne Mauvoisin-Delavaud

I am Jersey French, French by blood, Jersey by heart. I have spend my childhood in France and it was as one would dream. My husband and I bought this old school house as it reminded us both of our childhood, spent in little villages, where the baker and corner shop are always there to greet you. The fish monger comes twice a week, we also have an organic vegetables grower who comes on sundays. We have three children, who have been lucky to spend hours playing in the lake, cycling, late evening BBQ at home. beautiful walks chatting to each other. An amazing feel of space and lush landscapes which they need before returning to our little island and back to school!

Corinne Mauvoisin-Delavaud purchased this house in 2012
