About Jackie Sharpe.
Im Jackie Sharpe and I live in Spain . I have 2 daughters, who now live in England, the youngest is in the Motor Trade and the eldest is a primary school teacher.I am early retired as my husband became very ill and you know what they say about life being too short! So we took the step to move to Spain about 13 years ago. I still visit the UK frequently and love both countries for different reasons. I dont regret our move to Javea is so beautiful and so relaxing..Im sure you will think so to. I now get a real buzz from seeing my holiday makers have a good time at my properties. I enjoy eating out socialising with friends reading travel and Zumba!I.We own the house with David and Diana who live in the number is supplied so please feel free to give them or me a call .
Jackie Sharpe. purchased this House in 2001
Why Jackie Sharpe. chose Nanteuil-en-Vallée
The property is just off the RN 1O, so it has ease of access yet it feels like its in the heart of the country side. We really enjoy its peace, tranquillity, beauty and colourful locals. We own the property with our good friends David and Diana who live in the UK. We all 4 fell in love with house on our first visit and we still look forward to our time here. We spend our visits walking, eating, socialising and caring for the house and garden. The local restaurants are superb and the local sights and views -simply stunning. We have never regretted our decision to buy.
What makes this House unique
There is room to breathe - not to feel like one of the masses and be close to nature-recharge your batteries and renew your enthusiasm, in a timeless and unspoilt environment. Your days can be spent relaxing but equally it would be a shame not to venture out and see what the locality has to offer we are always discovering more and more. You can just walk down to the river which is a stones throw away and watch the fish and the rushing water or go a little further and visit the goats, the black pigs and /or the mules in local fields, or in the summer wonder to fields of sun flowers or take the river path to the old wash house or water mill. The property is traditional, once the village school house, but it has all the amenities for modern living and so it is comfortable and practical too.
