  • Description

    Description

    In August 2018 we bought a large Maison de maître (see photo). We have been decorating the property and opened a bed and breakfast and a Studio Apartment in July 2019. We have also been filmed for the Channel 4 TV programme "A New Life in the Sun" which was shown on Channel 4 in January 2020. We continue to renovate, decorate, garden and maintain this lovely property whilst running the Chambre d'Hote and apartments. Even during lockdown we have been busy and now with the restrictions eased there is plenty to see, do and experience. So come and join us and enjoy the experience!

    We live in a lovely part of the Dordogne on the edge of the town of Excideuil. There are plenty of outdoor pursuits. However if you are musical we have guitars and keyboard. We also want to set up a music room in the cellar.
