About Caroline Hawley
My name is Caroline Hawley, I am married to John, have two grown up sons and a black Labrador! We run an antiques auction business from our home in Yorkshire and I am a BBC antiques expert on Bargain Hunt, Flog It etc.. Since I saw and fell in love with La Guelandiere I have spent the last seven years restoring the farmhouse. This has been both great fun and a great challenge!! There was no electricity, water or glass in many of the windows, guests will be pleased to know that we now have all three in abundance and lots more besides! John and I have spent quite a lot of time in France over the last few years but the demands of the business mean that we need to spend more time in England therefore we have decided to rent out the house. My family, friends and I adore spending time here and I am sure that you will too.
Caroline Hawley purchased this Farmhouse in 2003
Why Caroline Hawley chose La Chapelle-près-Sées
We especially love this area for its temperate climate, plentiful rivers and forests, abundant wildlife and delicious regional produce. The area is easily accessible from England. There is a quality of life which we seem to have lost in England. Life seems to move at a slower pace, allowing people to have time for each other.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The farmhouse is set in splendid isolation in its own 4 acre, grounds, however a 7km drive will take you to Sees, cathedral town which offers everything you would require. In Sees there are shops, restaurants, banks, cafes and small cinema. The inland lake/beach of Le Mele is easy to find and good fun. A 12 minute drive can take you to the historic lace making city of Alencon, where tourist activities can be found, 40 minutes away is the famous 24 hr motor racing city of Le Mans. Paris can be reached within 2 hours. From this base you can enjoy great days out but also great days in! Should you not wish to venture far this rural retreat offers everything you would wish for a relaxing break, heated swimming pool, sauna, gym, huge open fireplace and plentiful supply of logs!
