About Joanna

Joanna and Bill Stuart-Bruges bought their first property in France in 1973, when they originally fell in love with the amazing Lot/Dordogne/Aquitaine region. At that time Bill's job had taken them, just married, to Bordeaux. They already had little Lilac Cottage in Devon. Now based in Hampshire, they now spend half their time in France, where Joanna has built up a team of excellent local craftsmen and housekeepers to restore and help look after 3 châteaux, as well as the original little farmhouse Lafage. The family includes several musicians and there are now 5 grand pianos and one upright, distributed amongst the properties!

Joanna purchased this cottage in 1970

Why Joanna chose Lot

We were actually living in Bordeaux when friends persuaded us to explore the Lot region. Without doubt it is the most beautiful, unspoilt and historically rich area of France. It is no accident that the English used to inhabit it since the Middle Ages! Since 1973 the French roads have made it easier and easier to travel to this traffic-free peaceful area. There are spectacular chateaux, medieval villages, underground caves and of course the great rivers Lot and Dordogne. In summer the surrounding villages have many musical, theatrical and gastronomic events.

What makes this cottage unique

Total seclusion, peace and quiet. Perfect for nature lovers and walkers.
