About Tom and Sheda Savage

Tom and I have been living in France for over 10 years now, having moved here from Yorkshire, England. One of the best decisions we have ever made.

I trained as an aromatherapist in England and now work in France as a 'Praticienne en massage de bien être'. Tom, my husband, has done such a good job renovating the gite, he now works renovating other peoples houses, from small odd jobs to full house renovations.

We like nothing better than going for a walk in the morning, with beautiful countryside on our doorstep or sometimes, to be more energetic, take a cycle ride.

We have travelled to many places in our lives from the Canary Islands to Kenya, but we are always happy to return to our 'little Tuscany' in France.

So why not join us and discover why we settled in this special part of SW France?

Tom and Sheda Savage purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Tom and Sheda Savage chose Montpinier

The property itself was ideal for us not too big and not too small. It is rural but not isolated less than 5 kms to Lautrec or nearest town is 10 kms to Castres. Both of these places are great to visit.

The airports to us are of equal distance from Carcassonne or Toulouse - you choose.

What makes this apartment unique

The view was the overriding factor that sold this house to us. Come and find out for yourself.

You can also book yourself in for a relaxing well being massage. A great start to your holiday!

This is a lovely gite in a rural position. The property was faultless and extremely well equipped. Set in a large garden in which to while away the time. The owners were very welcoming and helpful whilst still remaining unobtrusive. Would recommend this gite to anyone.
