About Tina Thatcher

We are a family of 4, Tina, Ted, Maggie and John. We have lived here in France for 8 years and thoroughly enjoy all things French.

Tina Thatcher purchased this in 2002

Why Tina Thatcher chose Mazamet

We chose this area of France because of it's beauty. It really is quite stunning, we're lucky enough to live in the Montagne Noire surrounded by forests and lakes. We love the peace and quite but we're close enough to Mazamet to enjoy the cafe lifestyle. The people in this area of France are truely lovely and have adopted us into the French way of life - we feel we are very lucky to have found this little piece of paradise!

What makes this unique

We live on site and therefore at hand if you should need anything at all, i.e. reserving tables at restaurants, information on what to do and where to go. However, if you don't want to see us then you don't have to!!! Because we are situated in 10 acres of privately owned land, children can run around and be safe and therefore the parents can relax knowing that their children can come to no harm. Also because there is plenty to do on site you don't have to venture out if you don't want to.
