About Clive Miller

We bought La Grosse Froge as a holiday home. We wanted the freedom that it offered ,get up when you want , eat when you want, and generally relax at our own pace. The pretty garden full of wildlife, and long sunny days. Eating in the garden and sitting under the star filled sky. What more could we want . We lived in Suffolk and being in the Suffolk Constabulary it was great to head for the Dordogne, known for the weather and culinary delights.

Clive Miller purchased this cottage in 1994

Relaxing farmhouse

The home provided everything we needed for a peaceful, relaxing vacation in southern France.

Clive and Jane were very attentive and lived on a nearby property to provide us with any help we needed. His garden vegetables were an added bonus!
