About Carol Ashworth

We live in North Yorkshire and have recently realised our dream - we have purchased our perfect home in the south of France. Until our children are all grown up we are confined to school holiday visits and have decided to let the house enjoy the presence of others for a year or two. We were lucky to buy the property from a family that had completed recent high quality improvements and we are assured that you will enjoy and respect this lovely place near the foothills of the Pyrenees, where the sunsets are breathtaking and the pace of life is gentle.

Carol Ashworth purchased this house in 2016
