About Liz and Ken Mason

We are both originally from Ireland but lived in England for all of our married life.

After ending our careers Liz as a nurse and mine in business we decided to purchase Les Frippierers in 2005 and to start a new period of our life here in France.

Liz and Ken Mason purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Liz and Ken Mason chose Indre-et-Loire

We offer 3 different properties each with it's own individual style and layout, all fitted to a high standard. The cottages are set in just over a acre of award winning gardens and each property has it's own private piece.

We only offer the cottages to couples and therefore the ambiance is quite and peaceful, set in part of the garden is our heated swimming pool which you can sit beside or just visit from your own garden and cool down.

Luxury Gites for 2 in the beautiful Dordogne

Domaine de Fumel

The 14m x 7m swimming pool has a deep end of 2.2m and a shallow end of 0.9m with roman steps. It is near the edge of a gentle grass slope and benefits from pastoral views and inspiring sunsets. Plenty of sun beds are provided around the pool, which is diligently covered every night to retain the solar gain in temperature.

Time, care and effort have been spent with selecting the right contents for each beautifully furnished home to make them as perfect as possible. They all have china, plenty of glasses (very essential!), pots and pans etc., a large fridge with separate freeze compartment, gas fired oven and 4 burner hob, washing machine, dish-washer, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, iron and cold box for food shopping and picnics. A hand towel and tea cloths are provided for the kitchen, along with a cleaning sponge, washing up liquid, washing powder and dishwasher tablets. We also supply you with tea, coffee, milk, sugar, biscuits and a bottle of fizz to get you holiday started.
