The area where I live and work is the southern part of Dordogne , south of Bergerac and also into the Lot et Garonne. It’s a region that I feel offers all that is special about life in France, good wines from the vineyards of Bergerac and wonderful fruit and vegetables grown in the farmlands of the Lot to the south. Aquitaine benefits from more than 2,000 hours of sunshine each year- the summers are long from May through to October, and even on winter days you can often enjoy sitting on a sunny patio. This area offers something for everyone - beautiful rolling,countryside perfect for walking and cycling and also no shortage of culture. It is a region steeped in history said to be ‘the land of a thousand and one Chateaux’ and there are tourist attractions for all ages. There are music festivals too, in the summer and in Bordeaux, only 2 hours away, you can enjoy the arts and theatre all year round. The many lovely medieval bastide towns with their weekly markets are within short driving distances of each other. These are vibrant, cosmopolitan communities that do not hibernate in the winter, and there’s a great social life. Bergerac is a thriving commercial centre with its International airport and cheap UK flights all the year round. So if you are looking for either a permanent home or a holiday property it’s a region with a lot to offer.
I came to live in the Southern Dordogne in 2004, with my husband Gordon. Initially we bought a Gîte business and we ran this very successfully for 8 years. We quickly made friends with our French neighbours and many other nationalities.I started teaching a Cours d’anglais, as I was an English teacher in UK , this also helped us to integrate. I have always been interested in property, as Gordon too works in property in France, so when we sold the gite business in 2012, I chose to join Leggetts as an independent property agent. It’s a job that I love, I really enjoy meeting so many different people and helping both buyers and sellers alike, drawing on my personal experience. Leggetts gives me flexibility and freedom, together with the superb marketing and back up of a truly professional company. If you are searching for a property in France, please get in touch, tell me what you are looking for and let me help you find the property that is right for you.
