About Nick Davidson

Fran and I bought our first French Property , Le Moulin de la Materette in December 1999. At the Moulin we run courses in Painting and Wood-turning, as well as rent out the Moulin and Grange for large extended family gatherings. We can accommodate 23 guests in the Moulin and Grange.

We bought Maison St Brigitte in 2006, but have only recently completed the renovations to make it an ideal mountain retreat for walking holidays. We continue to live in and love the Ariege, an area of outstanding beauty. So much so that two of our children have settled and live in this area closeby.

Our daughter, Sarah, has spent 10 years renovating Leela, her romantic getaway in the peaceful hamlet of Laborie.

Nick Davidson purchased this house in 2006

Why Nick Davidson chose Ariege

Beautiful location with access to wonderful walks.

What makes this house unique

Tranquillity and privacy in a spectacularly beautiful location whilst staying in a comfortable house. The log burner and large sauna and wet room make it particularly appealing for early and late holidays

Guestbook comments from the owner

A really relaxing week in the mountains, with just the right amount of walks to keep us fit and plenty more excursions to tackle next year. Many thanks

Un gite bien équipé pour recevoir un groupe un peu nombreux. Un environnement agréable qui permet d'être trés vite en montagne...vraiment une belle région pour des vacances au calme.
