About Joanne Farquharson

Joanne and Scott Farquharson live outside of London after moving from their long-time home near Washington, DC in the United States in 2015. They enjoy countryside walks with their two dogs, sailing and exploring fine restaurants.

Joanne Farquharson purchased this farmhouse in 2014

Why Joanne Farquharson chose La Salvetat-Peyralès

We accidentally fell in love with Le Nid 'the nest' (pronounced luh nee) while in France on our honeymoon. Hoping a property in France might be a reality down the road, we viewed a few properties for fun. Le Nid was a perfect retreat for us and would be an ideal property to let for visitors. We are so happy we took the leap.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Le Nid is serene and private while at the same time close to major airports and wonderful southern France markets and attractions.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Joanne,

What a joy it was to spend time in your beautiful home in France! The gorgeous stone and wood of the farmhouse made me feel as if I were in the France of 200 years ago. The only thing that belied that sentiment was the presence of every modern convenience that a visitor could wish for. How very comfortable we were.

We arrived well after dark at Puechmontard, tire, a bit on edge after our mountain drive only to be brought back to life by lovely warm note of welcome that greeted us. Mille fois merci.

Ce petit nid est fabuleux pour passer l'été tranquille dans un petit coin de aveyron. La maison est agréable et la piscine est super pour les enfants car bien protégée. Excellent séjour !

Superbe maison au calme

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué le nid d'hirondelle deux semaines en aout 2015. Nous étions 11 personnes. La maison est très bien équipée et très fonctionnelle. Il y a deux cuisine (une d'été et une à l'étage) toutefois un lave vaisselle serait un plus. La piscine est un vrai bonheur et elle est sécurisée tout comme l'accès à la mezzanine. Le jardin est très agréable et vraiment appréciable. Les pièces de la maison sont plus grandes que sur les photos. Les propriétaires ont répondu à toute nos questions et leur agent d'entretien local très discret. Un bon point de départ pour visiter la région. Un location vraiment très agréable un havre de paix et de tranquillité.
