About Monica Murphy

Since buying Maison d'Emilie In 2001we have both retired and the cottage is a perfect place to visit all year to escape. Our grown up children love to come out with their families to cycle,ski and walk in the mountains as does our Golden Retriever Darcy! We love France but we are British and would never leave England to live there permanently, France is for holidays!

Monica Murphy purchased this house in 2001

Why Monica Murphy chose Cauterets - Argeles area

We first visited Luz in 1999 for a 2 week holiday, there was so much to see and do in the area we returned the next year.Whilst we were walking along the GR 10 footpath we spotted Maison's d' Emilie being built, and thought this may be for us! We have been delighted with our buy and after 15 years we are still finding new things to see and do. Luz is the perfect place to escape to you if you enjoy the great outdoors, there is plenty to do all year round. We love the flowers in early summer, the butterflies and birds, and the skiing in winter and we walk in all seasons.
