About the Owner

I am a Gloucestershire GP and perhaps unsurprisingly my partner Pamela is a community nurse. We purchased our house in France 14 years ago and a Ski apartment in Bansko Bulgaria 7 years ago with our good friends Richard - who is also a doctor and Louise who is also a nurse (!) and their family. We have had many happy times with them as have our many guests over the last 13 years. We have 8 year old daughter Poppy and Richard and Louise have 2 boys Christian 14 and William 12.

Poppy loves the house in France and is already on the blue runs in Bulgaria. We welcome dogs to our house in France - for a small extra fee (to cover extra cleaning costs). Our choccie lab Alfie has been to La Paisible and loved it

Peace and tranquility

  • 4 of 5

The listing was more than accurate and the house was far better than the pictures or details show. We had our dogs with us and they had a great time, there is a cycle path that leads from the village and goes for miles so this was a great place to walk with them traffic free and the Auberge was at the end of the walk which was a bonus, there are many places to visit and we went out each morning and returned at lunch to have lazy afternoons under the lovely mature trees in the garden and dipping in and out of the lovely pool well tended by Eric the gardener. The property was well cleaned when we arrived and had very adequate furnishings and garden furnishing also, the barbeque was used each day by us for dinner and we all enjoyed that whilst having various bottles of wine to test from the local vineyard. The boulangerie was great for our daily bread and only a few minutes away in the village. With having the dogs we didn't tend to eat out much and found the local supermarkets great for shopping and trying out new foods , all in all it was a very relaxing place to go and everyone felt very relaxed and de stressed and enjoyed the stay very much.

From the Owner

We bought in Languedoc because we felt it was a more genuinely French and unspoilt area than Provence (and cheaper!). We have easy access to fabulous walking, many great restaurants, the wines of the Languedoc area and the Mediterranean beaches. The house is very quiet and private. The village has all the amenities you need for your holiday with a village shop and pub and 2 restaurants. the bakery is especially French and sells great breakfast fayre 6 -7 days a week depending on the season.
