Let us introduce ourselves...
Originally from the UK and New Zealand we both have a passion for meeting people and exceptional customer service. Having travelled extensively and with a combined background in event planning and business development and marketing, we decided to move to the beautiful Minervois region in the south of France and put all of our skills to good use establishing a bed and breakfast.
