My flat is a French family one, fully furnished for relaxing and not “busy housekeeper” stay. We live part time in Uk, enjoying the sun, the sea views, the peaceful and healthy weather in Hampshire. If you want to discover the new forest (fantastic !!), run in the moors, take a Chardonnay by the Beaulieu river, a cup of tea in cosy manors... feel the spirit of heritage in Winchester, Salisbury, Chichester... pop by Isle of Wight ... or just sunbathe .... Southampton is the place to stay.
