About Michael Stinton
Michael and Clova Stinton fell in love with this lovely old house whilst on honeymoon nearby in August 1988. The folly of such a rash purchase has become a joyful element in their marriage and they have enjoyed returning regularly as their children, now 28, 27 and 20 have grown up, making many good friends, including their near neighbours, Marie-Hélène and Jean-Marie. As creative people and school teachers (musician and artist, respectively) the long holidays have given the family the experience of a rural idyll away from the city environment of Oxford, where they live. Renovating the house, using craftsmen from the village and nearby, has been a special source of satisfaction and many guests have commented on the tasteful way that the house has been restored, using local materials and respecting the rustic character of the house.

Why Michael Stinton chose Rueyres
This large, safe and family-friendly farmhouse is ideal for large parties of up to thirteen plus two babies, and, in the past, three generations of the same family have regularly taken the house for holidays. Whilst it serves as a great base for those wishing to explore, it is also a safe haven to enjoy, just staying by the pool and relaxing in the sun.
What makes this House unique
The house is situated in an unusually unspoilt village location, with lovely views from the house and good walks in all directions. The building, too, preserves the integrity of its original rustic architecture and all its local features, such as walk-in fireplaces, together with citerne, souillarde and bolet. The grand pigeonnier (now housing all three bathrooms) and stone staircase are all original and intact. There are many activities nearby, as well as a lovely, very safe private pool that guests can enjoy.
