About Kevin Rogers

My family have lived here at La Crabouille, since November 1999.

The house was in a tired state as it had not been lived in for a few years. We set about the renovation and we started letting the property out for holidays in the summer of 2001.

We do not live on the property during the peak summer season but we do live on site in rooms on the ground floor for the rest of the year.

Kevin Rogers purchased this farmhouse in 1999

Why Kevin Rogers chose Perigord Pourpre

We loved the feel of the house it had been a grand family house and we believed it would be again.

Now fully retsored, the location is beautifilly tranquil surrounded by its own 18 acres of fields and woodland. Mature gardens with quite corners and hiden hide aways.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Amazing covered terrace with the best built in boys BBQ, summer kitchen and drinks fridge. l

Beautiful property - perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property in a great quiet location. The property is perfectly maintained and beautifully presented and much larger than we had anticipated - great for a holiday with the extended family. The photos don't do it justice! Kevin is a great host and full of knowledge about the local area / things to do. We definitely recommend!
