All good things come to an end....

... and it sometimes takes an end to create a new beginning....

In early spring 2004, Helen saw the chalet and recognised its promise.
She bought the chalet old and tired, renovated it, and opened its doors as Maison Jaune on Boxing Day 2004.

Now, after 18 years and very many happy memories, Helen is retiring, and we are passing the chalet on to its new owners at the end of July for it to become a family home once again.

We have exciting plans - to spend a couple of seasons exploring the Mediterranean on a 40ft sailboat, before settling down in a more quiet, rural part of France.... au revoir!
