We were community workers in Bristol. Dan is a Bristolian and Yvonne is from Slough. Our 38 year old boy Jo is a care worker in Edinburgh. Came south largely because of Yvonne needing a different climate for her health. Worked 100%
Wanted to be in France but near Spain and near to mountains and sea. Discovered Mirepoix and fell in love with area. Looked at over 50 places in 1994. Got fantastic value for our money at that time.
We value privacy for our guests but also offer great hospitality for those who want it. Have met many lovely people over 18 years. Great place to chill out.in the courtyard or by the pool. Lots of easy walks, and everything you could want within 30 minutes drive. 8 minutes to the wonderful Mirepoix and all facilities
