About Catherine Piner
We arrived here with our young family in 2003 with the intention of giving it a go for 5 years and we're still here! We came here from Surrey, so the pace of life has slowed down considerably, not only is this a great holiday destination it's a great place to live too. Both our children love it, they've only known the French school system so are far more fluent than either of us!
Catherine Piner purchased this cottage in 2003
Why Catherine Piner chose Crazannes
When we first saw this property and the beautiful garden we knew this had to be the one. The huge draw was the the fact that even though the 'gites' were little more than shells used for storage and garaging we could see they had massive potential especially as they were completely independent of the main house and each other. So each house would have it's only private space. The location is perfect, not a huge drive from the UK and when our guests arrive loads of interesting places to visit including some amazing beaches within a short drive. It was a top priority that our guests would be comfortable as although generally the climate is warm and sunny it's inevitable that some days may not be so bright.
What makes this cottage unique
The thing I remember most was during our second viewing of the property, we were sitting on the terrace and could hear the church bell chime midday, beautiful! So very peaceful and our girls have often said how lovely it is to sit and listen to the birds, as there are so many trees in the garden there are certainly no shortage of those!
