Paul and I grew up close to London and have travelled around the world extensively. My husband Paul is an eminent architect. Me, I am a passionate about creating exceptional gardens. When it comes to 'projects' together we make an exciting team. This is our tenth year improving this property. We love it, care about it, stay in it when we can. If you choose to stay here, we hope it will fulfil your expectations in the way that it fulfils ours.

Fiona Davis (Stephenson) purchased this cottage in 2003

It was love at first sight! From the moment we set foot in the courtyard and admired the views as well as the sheltered nature of the site we were falling in love with it.

Peering through the letter box, we could see the original stone floors of the hall and elegant stairs winding to the first floor. The solidity of the stone walls and generous proportions of the rooms within the house was such a refreshing change from all the other properties we viewed, many of which were poor quality conversions.

We chose the region because we both love France and fell in love with the friendliness, space and rolling, unspoilt countryside of the South West. The peace and tranquility as well as the ancient bastide towns from the middle ages, still in abundance drew us to this historic region.

We decided to hunt for properties in the middle of December, in order not to be seduced by lovely weather! After a week of searching we came across this one, it stole our hearts from the word go.

The setting - views, each different, from all different rooms in the house, and all different areas of the gardens. So many of them. A south facing courtyard. Many outdoor facilities in the barns surrounding the main house - two of which are now providing further accommodation.

The sunsets, when the clouds are on the heavy side of wispy at dusk, the sunsets can be gloriously breathtaking.

The swimming pool, open from late May to mid October. 16.5 metres long means 3 lengths = 50 metres for keen swimmers. Widening to 7 metres and 1.35 metres deep throughout makes it ideal for pool games. Security gate and walls with generous lounging areas within.

The gardens, extensive, inviting and absolutely full of flowers from March to November. We have developed around 10 gardens around the property, from intimate spaces to sweeping meadows, each with its own character and each inviting itself to be enjoyed.

The location, in a hamlet with a few other house, with villages each way within a couple of kilometres, several bigger towns with weekly markets within 15 minutes drive and cities within 45 minutes.

The elegance of the house, the rooms, how it is now furnished, the gardens, the pool areas, the outdoor rooms.

Cordes sur Ciel - one of the three greatest French hill town with artisan shops and famous Jardins de Paradis. Prehistoric caves, ancient castles, woodland and hillside walks, even cliff climbing if you dare! At night, the Milky Way is astoundingly clear. So many things to do, or just relax and observe the unspoilt landscape, flora and fauna all around you.
