About Farzana Tubby
We came to France to seek a slower pace of life. I live at Pérard with my 3 little dogs and 1 cat. Love gardening. My property now has a well tamed wild garden with flowers everywhere. I love going back to the UK at least once a year but love it more coming back to my little tranquil paradise.
Farzana Tubby purchased this Cottage in 2003
Why Farzana Tubby chose Caylus
I came on holiday to this property 25 years ago and rented the Gîtes. Immediately fell in love with the house. During that stay we asked if they wanted to sell and we waited 8 years to purchase it.
What makes this Cottage unique
Rural setting with peace and quite. Away from it all. Unspoilt views and magnificent sunsets. No light pollution at night so a beautiful sky full of stars.
