My wife and I live in Salisbury England, my wife is retired and so has our cat, I am a consultant in the leisure industry. Early in my career I traveled all over the world as a hotel manager for Cunard Line I also spent a number of years as a consultant organising concerts and events at historic houses and we have also owned our own hotel.

RON TAYLOR purchased this house in 2003

Why RON TAYLOR chose Perigord Blanc

Having travelled extensively we wanted sun, good food and wine, a home large enough to entertain in, but most importantly we wanted peace and quite, somewhere to relax and unwind surrounded by beautiful countryside and our home ticked all the boxes.

We have superb restaurants, there are markets every day of the week in one local town or another selling wonderful seasonal produce, an artisan bread and cake shop is just up the road which does not help the waist line but it does so make you feel good!

The only downside to all this is that sometimes we become so relaxed that it becomes a chore to go shopping.

The feedback from guests has done nothing but reinforce our choice of location and home.

What makes this house unique

We have equipped our home with everything we feel that our visitors would want to make a perfect base

an expat friend once said after dinner one evening that our house was a home and not a holiday let. We took that as a great compliment. All thanks to my wife who is in charge of furnishings and colour schemes, I just do the work. Another guest told our caretakers that I must be a chef because of all the gadgets and equipment in the kichen (I'm not!)

We simply work on the basis that if we would want it so would our guests.
