About Tony Cole

My wife and I and our 2 children live in North Yorkshire and have always loved holidays in France. Having explored different areas, we fell in love with the Languedoc and Quillan in particular with its contrasting range of mountain and farmland scenery, historic towns and castles, cuisine and of course, wine.

We recently bought The White House from an English family who had renovated it to a very high standard and rented it to very satisfied holidaymakers judging from the feedback they had.

We fell in love with the house and its location, being only a 5 minute level walk to the many bars, restaurants, shops and market in Quillan, whilst having a private secluded garden with views of woodland and the hills beyond.

Tony Cole purchased this house in 2014

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Lovely two weeks in the sun! The White House was a perfect base for exploring the area ... the pool was much enjoyed by children and adults alike."
