What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
Its rural Charm and Frenchness; it has a magical quality that is hard to describe but it was love al first sight.
Are there any interesting stories in its history?
The border of the Bordeaux wine appellation was drawn around the property in the 1850s; it was owned for 400 years by the same protestant clerics' family, counter to the reversal of the treaty of Nante that disallowed Protestants to be major property owners. Paul Revere (Longfellow poem fame) came from here.
