About Paul & Petra Boyle-Roth

Petra and Paul have jointly spent over 45 years in Global Business Travel all over the world. In 2009, whilst based in Hong Kong, we purchased our house in Bram and spent 2 years restoring the property to modern standards and converting it to a family home.

Having taken early retirement and experiencing Global travel as tourists, we decided to rent out 'Coup de Coeur'.

With Petra being a Swiss and Paul an English national, we share our non traveling time between the UK, Switzerland and France.

Paul & Petra Boyle-Roth purchased this chateau / country house in 2009

Its red-roofed streets circling around a central church (snail-village) , making it easily visible from the air as you fly in. It is surrounded by lovely countryside, where hectares upon hectares of vines grow in the celebrated Languedoc sunshine. Bram is also in the heart of Cathar country, and the remains of many castles can be spotted on the hilltops close to the town.
