Chateau Cypres, France

Chateau de Rochebonne

The other day somebody asked me why the property is called Les Cypres in my book, when its real name is Rochebonne.

The reason is quite simple – I didn’t want people to read my book and then come to France to explore and see if they could find it !  As the property is let most of the year to holiday makers, that could be a real nuisance.

Why Les Cypres ?  I suppose because there are Cyprus trees along the drive. Or it may be because we toyed with buying a small place in Cyprus for several years – and decided against it, thank goodness.
