About the Owner
I'm Erica (from Berkshire) and with my husband John (from Manchester), and our two pet dogs, we welcome B&B guests to our home in this special corner of France.
Our life is different now to the many years we both spent in IT Sales, although we continue to work hard - it's different work. We enjoy travelling and seek out boutique guesthouses, avoiding hotel chains where possible.
We love the relaxed pace of life here, the food and of course the wine. We find time to get outdoors, me on horseback and John on his road bike. We've many friends in our village and beyond, and immerse ourselves into french life as much as possible. My french has come on, since my A-level many years ago; John will be the first to admit he finds it a little harder but the locals applaud his efforts!
From the Owner
“We were lucky to visit on recommendation from John's parents, who've regularly visited the Beziers region over the past 20 years. We came for 1 week and purchased the property on day 5, having viewed more than 40 houses in a variety of locations. Neffies was love at first sight for us. Many wine-growing villages in the area are pretty, have retained their character, and sit atop hilltop locations with narrow streets and beautiful architecture. Neffies had all that but there was something a little extra - it felt real. The friendly people were busy going about their business, and everything was just right for the community. We enjoy rural idyll yet can reach beaches and vibrant towns in no time at all. With so many places of interest and airports a plenty - we're truly spoilt.”
