About David and Amanda Lewis

We live in Norfolk where we brought up our three sons. We are thrilled to have been able to purchase our dream French House having fallen in love with it on a trip back to the UK from Spain. We have recently created a Facebook page for Beaumont where we post photos and things of interest about Beaumont and the area so feel free to search for Chez Lewis Beaumont on Facebook.

David and Amanda Lewis purchased this house in 2016

Why David and Amanda Lewis chose Orival

We weren't intending to buy a property but we saw Beaumont and loved the fabulous views and the sheltered courtyard - perfect for dining and lounging in. The house had a great friendly feel to it with oak beams, wooden and tiled floors. Having collected vintage French linens and other bits of brocante I was thrilled to have some where to use them.

What makes this house unique

The above ground pool has the most wonderful views and the hamlet is quiet. At night the skies are beautiful and clear - perfect for star gazing. The house is south facing so the sun floods in all day.

Lovely house, very well equipped, really is a home from home. Fabulous views across the valley.

  • 5 of 5

This property is much more luxurious than your average gite. It has a large kitchen diner which is great for family dining. The kids will love the pool area which has views to die for. Only a few minutes drive to supermarkets and some very good restaurants. We had a great stay even though the weather wasn’t great.

Calme et belles balades

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine, la maison est très bien équipée et la situation de la maison est idéale pour se balader avec les chiens sans prendre la voiture.

Beaucoup de commerce à Chalais(5 minutes en voiture).
