Over the years Jill Newton helped many off you find and sell properties in both Brittany & Normandy;was recognised as one of the "original" agents and having started up the British market in central Brittany back in 1986.
In Cornwall she was known for her historical books like "The Furry Dance" & "Flora Day" amongst others.
