About Bev Robb
My wife Julie and I live in Cumbria in the north of England just south of the Scottish border. Both of us grew up in Cumbria and shortly after getting married 29 years ago we set up a healthcare business which we still continue to be fully involved in. We started taking our vacations in France, firstly towing a caravan to regions such as Brittany with our three children and often their friends, then going further afield renting villas and getting to know new areas such as Provence and the Cote D'Azur.. We came to realize that the region we liked best was Languedoc Rouission which seemed to have endless warm sunny days and the scenery was fantastic so we took the plunge and bought Villa Mimosa near Ceret which happened to be the first house we looked at.Although needing some work it had everything we wanted such as privacy,fantastic views and a swimming pool. Year by year we improved various aspects of it till it was just as we envisioned. It is now a wonderful second home where we can decamp to as a bolt hole from our demanding lives in the UK, We continue to enjoy having children/grandchildren and friends on a regular basis having the satisfaction of having a home we have made our own over the years in on of the most desirable but unspoilt regions of France.
Bev Robb purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Bev Robb chose Reynès
This property encompassed everything we envisioned in not just a second home but also a holiday home, easy maintenance, spacious but still 'homely', south facing aspect with great views and a manageable pool and garden but also close to local amenities.
