About Kerry Latchford
I have been living in Pouzolles for 8 years now and it's the best move I have ever made! Having lived in big cities - Dublin, London, Sydney, Melbourne - since finishing college the move to a small village in the South of France was strange at first but I couldn't go back to a city now. I walk my dog in the vines every day, see the seasons change, learn more and more about wine and the vines, enjoy seafood lunches at Bouzigues and Gruissan, swim in lakes and rivers and most of all, what still gives me a huge buzz, is being able to eat lunch outside in February! Now married to a lovely Frenchman we couldn't leave Pouzolles so we bought another house in the village!
Kerry Latchford purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Kerry Latchford chose Pouzolles
I moved to the South of France from Australia and drew a circle around Montpellier to start my search for somewhere to live. I discovered Pezenas and searched for properties around this area with a garden - not easy to find. I finally found this cottage and fell instantly in love! I did it up a bit - inside loo, wood stove, double glazing, garden makeover - and lived here very happily for 3 years. I then bought another larger house in the same village!
What makes this Cottage unique
The garden is the main reason I bought this house and the main reason people love it. The house is cute and cosy and welcoming but the garden is really special. It's private, green, has plenty of space but mainly just has a great feel... you'll see.
