About Geoffrey Earl

We are Geoffrey and Dena, we have a son called Adam, and although we live and work in beautiful Cornwall, we take a real delight in our trips over to our holiday home in Creissan in the South of France, we've got to know the local people there, and really fall into the French way of life, so different to back home in Britain, especially the weather and always come back refreshed.

Geoffrey Earl purchased this house in 2004

Why Geoffrey Earl chose Creissan

The moment we arrived at Languedoc, we really did fall in love with it's rustic charm, the whole region gives off an air of idyllic warmth, from the eerie sounds of the cigale, to the gentle waving of the sunflowers, the sight of sun drenched vines, and the scent of lavender, these are some of the factors that make it so attractive to us, and it is hoped that you also experience these same pleasures.

What makes this house unique

We look forward to the leisurely walks by the Canal du Midi, swimming in the communal pool in Creissan, exploring the many varied aspects of the region, from the Mountains of the ''parc naturel'', the historic villages, and towns, with many good restaurants to choose from, to the lively events that are always taking place somewhere in the vicinity, of course not forgetting the many beaches, then returning to the house for that nice relaxing glass of wine to end the day.
