About Ken and Linda Austin

Linda and I have been at Les Lavandes since 1996, having moved here with our family from Perpignan, where we lived for three years. Ken is a web designer and also hosts websites for other people. Since moving here we have totally renovated all of the properties and have tried our best to equip them with everything you could need whilst on holiday. Linda has always been interested in fabrics and has made all of the curtains, cushions and soft furnishings.

We have made many good friends with our guests over the years, many who have returned every year since we have been here. Les Lavandes is our business and not just a hobby, so we make it our business to make sure that our guests have a wonderful time with us.

Ken and Linda Austin purchased this bungalow in 1996

Why Ken and Linda Austin chose Perigord Noir

Linda and I have run Les Lavandes as a tourist business for nearly 20 years. This is not a hobby for us or just another property to implement our pensions, it is our way of life. We do everything in our power to make your holiday as memorable and as perfect as possible, which our visitors book on our website can attest to.

What makes this bungalow unique

Each of our properties are private and not overlooked by the other properties. There are glorious walks from your doorstep and some of the best restaurants in the region are within easy reach. We will be on hand to make reservations for you and to insure that your holiday is as perfect as it can be. We have wonderful views from the property and plenty of space to relax in, see our panoramic photos on our website.

Wonderful Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful and relaxing holiday at La Bergerie. Excellently equipped and comfortable house, delightful swimming in the pool and above all else attentive and helpful hosts - do follow up on their excellent restaurant reservations. Great villages and the river so close to explore. An absolute recommendation!

La Bergerie

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property in a stunning location. There is lots of open space at Les Lavandes which our two boys age 8 and 12 particularly enjoyed. The swimming pool is a good size, and well maintained. The property is well located for visiting many of the areas tourist attractions. Our hosts Ken and Linda were very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay.

We would highly recommend Les Lavandes to friends or relatives.
