About Marie-Pierre Watt

Of British origin living for more than 50 years in France, my French wife and I profit from the life in this magnificent region of France. I particularly appreciate the local architecture and the traditional building techniques that make it so endearing, the local wines and all the historic sites in the Perigord Noir.

Marie-Pierre Watt purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Marie-Pierre Watt chose Carves

What appealed to us when we purchased the property were the truly exceptional views on the countryside around, the peacefulness of the tiny hamlet le Mas, the warmth of the local inhabitants and the possibilty of restoring a famhouse built in 1777 and the buildings built and extended until the beginning of the 20th century.

What makes this cottage unique

Having decided upon retirement to undertake the restoration of these old buildings we wanted to create the atmosphere of the large family house that had been ours before, so that all our visitors would feel at home, comfortable in a family atmosphere but with sufficient room both inside and out not to feel on top of each other.
