I am British woman who came to live in France with my husband 17 years ago to seek a slower pace of life. I found it in the SW of France after years of looking for something in the Provence. We rented Pérard for a 2 week holiday and fell in love with the area and the property. Bought it 10 years later when the children were all installed in University. Following the sudden death of my husband I am still here 15 years later and love hosting. I love gardening so have transformed the gardens from sterile gravel paths to a beautiful natural garden with wild flowers who self seed each year. Being a natural host I love sharing my world with everyone.
