About Trevor and Sue Morris

Trevor & Sue have been running a property renovation business in the Midi-ÿrenees since 2002 specialising in the renovation of stone barns and corps de hermes. They bought Acacia and Jasmine cottages in 2007 when they were totally derelict and lovingly restored them to their current high standard.

Trevor has been a builder since 1988 and has also worked as a free lance journalist publishing a collection of columns about his experiences working in France entitled 'Vive la Rénovation' in 2007.

Sue used to specialise in welfare benefits, working over the years for various local governments and solicitors but now manages the running of the holiday cottage business while Trevor continues his contracting and property development business.

St Antonin's Sunday market, held along the picturesque medieval streets (where the film 'Charlotte Grey' was filmed) is atmospheric and lively. There are centres for hiring kayaks, a four hour gentle descent along the Aveyron gorge, picnicking along the way and a minibus to bring you back.
