More about the donor : Anne-Marie Martin - Riverside Retreat cottage - Limousin/Auvergne, France

I have been looking at ways of 'giving back' and sharing our beautiful place in my native France where I spend the summer as I live in Houston with my British husband. We have 2 children, Jeremy 20 who studies in Montreal and Melanie 18 who might go to Oxford next autumn.

Since 2004 I have been welcoming visitors who enjoy their stay in Southern Corrèze in Limousin and love our property setting by the river Dordogne. Some enjoy fly-fishing, others relaxing by the pool or sightseeing and enjoying the local food.

I wish I could meet all our guests myself but in my absence our local mandates take over. But on September 24th, Max & Minnie (our 2 Border Collies) and myself will be very happy to welcome you whether you come as a couple or a family. Good luck with the bidding!
