Who we are

  1. We are Harris (a Barrister) and Victoria (an English Teacher)with grown-up children. Orignally from the UK and living in central London, we have lived in France for over 14 years. Harris is a keen sportsman and bridge player and Victoria loves cooking and gardening and all things outdoors. We are non-smokers and would look after and respect your home as we do our own.

    We came across our lovely Domaine Le Ruisseau estate after much searching. We are very lucky to have this haven of tranquility and calm in one of France's and Europe's most interesting and beautiful regions. On our 50 acre estate there are only two houses, our own and Chestnut Cottage.

    It is such a pleasure to see our friends, guests and home-exchangers coming from around the world to enjoy Domaiane Le Ruisseau, where they experience all the delights of Chestnut Cottage, the estate and the region.

    We hope that you may enjoy its delights too!
