About Louise and James Hampson

We explored the depths of France in search of the perfect spot to set up home and business. We found it here in Grandmont.

As a holiday and winter rental business Grandmont Gites has thrived since its conception in 2008, regularly scoring full marks on TripAdvisor.

Our Gites are charming, stylish and cosy and we pride ourselves in accommodating guests with holidays to treasure.

We reside from the UK South West England and have been planning our move to France for some years now. We fell in love with Grandmont on-the-spot, immediately recognising it for the special place it is. The idea of making it our new home and lifestyle was a no-brainer and at Olympian speed, was planted firmly in our hearts. Who could possibly resist being surrounded by such incredible beauty? Acres of lush green forest and luminous lakes. Cottages built of stone with wooden beams and cosy log burners. A scenic pool setting with a garden that stretches as far as the eye can see. Not to mention heaps to do here on the doorstep and a little further afield.

We were, and remain to the day, blown away. 

It’s no surprise to us Grandmont Gites has been booked all year round for the past five years thanks both to its stunning backdrop and the quality of these three charming, stylish and cosy gites.

What we bring to Grandmont...

James is a highly experienced carpenter and Louise a qualified interior designer and communications manager. Before moving to France we worked side by side installing over 40 bespoke kitchens across the South West of England over the course of a year.

 Together we're enthusiastic cooks and passionate party hosts so we’re truly excited by the many opportunities Grandmont Gites affords us.

Most of all, we are enjoying sharing what Grandmont has to offer our guests and providing them holidays to treasure. Along the way, we hope to learn more about them too!
