About Helen & James Gray
We are a retired couple - James previously worked in the City (London) and Helen in a GP surgery as a psychotherapist. We have two sons and one grandson. Besides the latter, our passion is gardening and we are always seeking new ways to develop the different areas of the garden at Petites Cotes. Our chief desire is to give our guests pleasure as well as relaxation in the beautiful surroundings of Perigord Vert. We spend time in both London and France. We are members of a book, history and gardening club and attend the local English speaking church in France. We love eating out especially as there are many inexpensive restaurants in the area.
Helen & James Gray purchased this cottage in 2004
