Groom's Cottage is a unique apartment in the same complex as Chateau L'Hubertiere. It is priced for 2 persons sharing. An additional bed is available for a small charge. Pets are welcome by pre booking and also a small charge. The only interruption to your tranquility will be birdsong and the church bells chiming on the hour from 7 am. Should you not want to be woken you simply shut your double glazed windows! The apartment contains quality furnishings and every convenience for your stay including a dishwasher and flat screen TV with UK TV channels. In the courtyard you may enjoy an outdoor sitting area exclusive to guests of the cottage. There are too many fascinating nearby medieval villages with Roman influence to mention them all. You will never be bored! Our village has a very good bistro which is open miday on weekdays. There are numerous eateries in other nearby towns. At the weekends during the summer there is a vide greniers (a sort of car boot sale) in one of any number of villages. A small orange booklet will guide you to them. The Circuit du Val de Vienne is a short drive away for those interested in motor vehicle racing. If you are part of a car club or cycle club you may want to book the whole chateau with 8 bedrooms. The chateau is set in magnificent parklike gardens . Many villages have free music events on weekends during the summer. Come and enjoy a stay in a largely undiscovered but one of the most magnificent rural areas of France.

If there are no private groups in the chateau at the time of your visit you may be invited to use the 10 m swimming pool. If this is unavailable there is a lake with a small beach and a large forest at Queaux only 7 minutes away.

My wife and I love to travel. Our last major trip was in a luxurious Mercedes motorhome from London, through Northern Europe and into Eastern Europe and returning through Italy and France. We took 9 months off to do this incredible trip and enjoyed the various cultures and food styles in the different countries. We visited ancient monuments as well as contemporary art museums and loved it all. Now France beckons us!

The first thing I cannot live without is my wife of 37 years. She is my best friend. Following close behind are our 30 year old son who has lived with us until recently. We are fortunate to have many friends living in Sydney and they are precious to us and our lifestyle.

We are both addicted to good food and wine, architecture both historic and contemporary, music and art. On our dining table in any one week you could find Italian, Indian, French or Thai. Excellent produce is the key to great food. We are very, very fortunate to have wonderful restaurants and bars just around the corner from home.

We enjoy attending live music performances and Sydney has a number of venues where you can listen to a wide variety of styles of music.

I am inclined to play anything from Cold Play to all the 1960's classics whilst my wife likes more ambient music such as the classics and European music. We have a large collection of CD's.

I had considered retiring aboard a yacht in The Caribbean but was then drawn to a chateau in France. That is the latest adventure. The classic yacht is for sale in The Caribbean and it is proving a long journey renovating a chateau close to Poitiers.

Visitors to France may hire the Groom's Cottage for self contained accommodation or the entire chateau for up to 16 people. It is in the heart of a quaint and tranquil village called Bouresse. It is set in park like gardens with magnificent trees such as a cedar of Lebanon, walnut, horse chestnut and magnolia grandiflora. The swimming pool is reserved for residents of the chateau but if it happens to be vacant then guests in the cottage may be invited to use it also. The cottage has two rooms/en suite and every possible facility for independent living. It also has free parking. The chateau has 4 reception rooms, an enormous kitchen, separate laundry, spa bath + sauna and 8 rooms on the upper levels.

Film is a big part of our life and we love to walk to the Verona Cinema in Oxford Street,Paddington to catch their latest showing.

We are members of the Surry Hills Library which is not only an extraordinary building in Crown Street but also a great institution.

Darlinghurst is such an ideally central suburb, we walk a lot. There are magnificent walks along the cliffs from Bondi Beach through Tamarama to Bronte. Or Dover Heights to Watsons Bay. Sydney's largest and most magnificent park is Centennial Park and is only a few minutes from our home. You can also cycle there in safety and bikes are available for hire. There is a very good childrens' playground with an excellent cafe/restaurant just beside it.

Our profession was in real estate and this came as a result of our passion for architecture and design. I daresay if we had to choose a motto in life it would go something like this: to strive for excellence in anything we do.

We are accustomed to being hosts as we have in the past owned historic country homes in The Hunter Valley and in Tasmania which we restored and then turned into guest houses. Our first business when we arrived in Sydney in 1982 was to create Classic Boat Charters. At the time we had bought the remains of a classic 12 Metre class yacht called "Vim". We bought her for her beauty of line and later discovered that she had been built in America for Harold Vanderbilt and so began a 2.5 year journey to bring her back to her former glory. She now lives in Italy.

We are just embarking on a new and exciting life in France and whilst Yvonne speaks French I have to learn. Our village has a bistro which serves weekday lunches of 5 courses including wine for only Euros 12.50. It is worth visiting us just to have lunch at the Restaurant du Centre. In summer you can see a variety of Nuits Romain (mostly free performances of excellent and international quality) both in Bouresse and the surrounding pretty villages. The magnificent rolling countryside is citrus yellow in Spring from the canola, golden in summer from the sunflowers paying homage to the sun and beautiful in autumn in copper and amber tones. A weekend brings antique and bric a brac markets to all the surrounding villages. Bouresse is an easy drive to Futuroscope (the technology theme park), 36 mins to the stunning medieval city of Poitiers, the fortress city of Chauvigny and a short drive to the 100 acres of woods with lakes for sailing and swimming that surround the village of Queaux.
