Karen & Andy Williams

We are Andy and Karen Williams, originally from Norfolk, England, until we moved to France in 2012. The search for our dream home in France eventually led us to a property that fitted the bill perfectly in terms of location, potential for Andy as a complete restoration project, and our small budget. That was in 2006. We spent our holidays here working on the property over the next few years, until 2012 when we followed our hearts, sold our house in England and made the move to our home in France. Then, we focused our attention on restoring the section of the building we designed as a self-contained gîte, and opened for holiday rental in 2015. We offer our visitors the personal touch, so from booking to the end of your stay, we are here to help. From inspiration for places to visit, to booking restaurants or golfing etc. before you arrive. On arrival we are there to greet you and show you around the gîte, how appliances work and where to find all you need. We provide a complimentary welcome pack consisting of wine, bread, cheese, butter, eggs, plus a few teabags, some sugar and coffee for the machine. And if you would like us to shop for other food items to be ready for you on arrival, we can do that too. We hope to meet you here very soon!
