About the Owner
We've had Le Puy since 2005. The place was a real wreck then but we loving brought the place back to life since then. We still live in the UK running a restaurant business in Sussex, but woud love to move to France full-time when the kids are bigger.
From the Owner
“Le Puy is all about nature. From the stunning views to the buzzards flying overhead and the stags wandering through our forest, it's all about getting in tune with a slower pace of life. We've also made the houses comfortable, well-equipped an easy to relax in. Everything you need is to hand and the kids will love it too. Having said that, you won't feel isolated with British TV and WiFi to keep you up to date with goings on if you need them. The area around Le Puy is also really beautiful - forest clad hills, lakes, rivers and sleepy authentic villages.”
