Who are we?

We are Tim & Margreeth Alexander, an Anglo Dutch couple who have been running Chateau des Lys since March 2013. Whilst on holiday here in the Summer of 2012 we fell in love with the area & the Chateau and bought the place on a whim deciding to just uproot and go for it. Margreeth was an English & Remedial teacher in secondary school & Tim was a musician, insert joke(s) here. We freely admit to having no prior experience with this sort of thing but somehow the place has flourished and now we feel consolidated enough to start expanding things, hence this offer which we feel is a genuine bargain.

We hope that we’ve covered all areas (please click around) but since we’ve honestly never been engaged in this kind of thing before we’d be happy to answer any questions you have and correct any mistakes or omissions we’ve made. We really think that with that amount of money there are very few things that you could do that are more worthwhile than buying a Gite in this Chateau. Er…  except possibly eating fresh Lobster Thermidor and drinking Chablis every other night.  And that’s easily possible here too…
