About the Owner
I recently moved back to Cumbria after spending 8 years in the South of France where I set up and ran a property business. Before moving to France I was owner of a graphic design studio and worked for many national and international clients. Ex-rugby player and keen on all sports including skiing, mountain biking, rowing, walking I love the great outdoors so am lucky to have rental properties in both the south of France and the Lake District. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

- Notes on accommodation: The property was lovingly restored and designed by the leading architect/builder in the Languedoc. As many original features as possible were retained and only the best materials were used. We have tried to provide our guests with an authentic French holiday experience in an unspoilt farming/wine producing community. Outside: During the renovation process we created a roof terrace to take advantage of the south facing aspect and the spectacular views. It is a real sun trap, every one's favourite place to chill out with a glass of delicious local wine or morning coffee and fresh croissants from the village bakery. Dining furniture is provided for al fresco dining. The perfect place for breakfast or to watch the sun go down. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: The rental price includes bed linen and towels that are changed weekly. The property is cleaned weekly at every changeover.
