About the Owner

We have now been living in this beautiful part of France for 15 years. Our backgrounds are very varied, from army life to a development in Menorca, starting an architectural newspaper, running a restaurant and clock restoration with an antique shop. Tennis and Petanque players.

We love meeting new clients and returning ones who have become friends.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Les Hirondelles is a magical place, not least because of Meg and Sim who are the world’s best and most welcoming hosts. When we were not sunbathing and swimming in the French sunshine, we were out walking in the mountains and woods, picnicking by a stream amongst a mass of spring flowers and surround-sound birdsong. And when we weren’t doing that, we were being thoroughly entertained by Meg and Sim in their glorious garden with a glass or two (or more!) of local wine. Add in the gorgeous Maddie and her two visiting catty friends, and we were in heaven. If we didn’t love our homeland Cornwall so much, we’d move in permanently.

From the Owner

We fell in love with the views, the southerly aspect and most of all, the house. Cazedarnes is a growing village but still very much for the Vignerons (winemakers). We are surrounded by beautiful scenery and wonderful walks. Still having the easy access to villages and towns, Canal du Midi and the sea and 5 airports.
