About Brett Rierson (Owner)
I live in Kampala, Uganda and founded African Harvest Ventures, working with smallholder farmers across African to reduce post-harvest losses and practice sustainable agriculture. Prior to that, I had a career with the UN World Food Programme, serving as China Country Director and establishing WFP's Global Post Harvest Centre. My wife Rosa is a recovered Goldman Sachs banker who is now a fitness professional with a focus on kite surfing, yoga and pole dancing. The online management (bookings, inquiries, etc) is managed by the talented Cissy Nansera - she speaks English and a rapidly improving level of French. On arrival, you will be welcomed by Elodie.
Brett Rierson (Owner) purchased this Farmhouse in 2002
Why Brett Rierson (Owner) chose Saint-Laurent-sous-Coiron
We fell in love with Ardeche. After many years of living in dense urban environments in Asia, St Laurent sous Coiron was the perfect remedy. Fresh, open, peaceful, slow-paced. When we bought the property it was with the intent to start using it immediately, but with some part of the house we could renovate, and put our own 'stamp', or personality into the house. The renovations of the barn took over two years...but it is worth it.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
There is really no way to put 'the view' into a photos. From the 5 bedrooms facing the pool deck, and of course, from the pool itself, you have an ... enormous sky - a 180 degree panorama overlooking the Ardeche valley, and to the south, over 100km away, you can see the mountain ranges that are just off the Mediterranean coast. We had no desire to be closer to the crowds, the noise, and the traffic of the cote d'azur. At night, there is so little light pollution that you can see the satellites passing overhead...even more fun when you have just come out of the sauna, and are lying face-up in the pool.
