NEW/NOUVEAU !! An amazing opportunity to see Normandy whilst enjoying delicious food from around the world in a beautifully restored Presbytere.

LIBBY and JOHN live in a small village in the heart of Normandy with their two dogs Edith and Margaux. We have owned and completely renovated the historical Presbytere over the last 23 years resulting in a luxurious and stylish home which we are happy to share with you.
We lived in Hong Kong for 15 years and travelled extensively to countries such as China, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Korea, Australia, New Zealand........ and as a result, your delicious meals during your stay will reflect our travels.
After leaving Hong Kong we lived in southern Spain for 11 years and travelled throughout Europe in our camper van, again picking up recipes to delight your tastebuds.
We are now permanently based in our French home and host students from around the world for English immersion stays and holidays.
Our focus is to offer a fun and relaxing experience whilst ensuring that only English is spoken and used throughout the entire stay.
As well as owning his own businesses, John was also a lecturer at University in the UK. Libby has worked for the public sector, has a TEFL qualification and has worked in the international school system in Hong Kong. She later became senior vice president of the Geddes Group.
