About Me
I worked in academia for many years, culminating in working at the Royal College of Art. I'm now retired and we have a house in SW France which we stay in when it's not rented out. It always seems a shame to leave a nice home empty so it seems logical to rent our home out to academics travelling to London. Our home in France is also ideal, especially for academics who require a very tranquil environment.

ABOUT LISTING # 107336 (DORDOGNE) We stayed at Marou for September and October 2018. The house is located at the very end of a farm track. There is no passing traffic and only the post van calls. There are friendly neighbours nearby but Marou is beautifully tranquil and private. Below the house is a magical valley where a quiet early morning or evening stroll will offer you glimpses of deer, wild boar, ravens, green woodpeckers and other bird and animal life. The pool was warm enough to use right up until mid-October and the pool side, with its sunshades offers the most wonderful spot to sit and work and reads and maybe snooze when your writing isn’t quite flowing. There’s a beautiful walk through sweet chestnut woods into the village of Villefranche du Périgord where you’ll find everything you might need - cold beer, good wine, two village supermarkets, and a world class patisserie - try the tartlette pomme. If you want to explore further afield, there are impressive chateaux and abbeys such as Biron and Cadouin, and bastide towns such as Monpazier, Belvès, Villfranche itself, and Montcabrier.

ABOUT LISTING #106822 (LONDON) We rented this flat for two months in the summer of 2017 and had a terrific experience. The flat was well equipped, comfortable, quiet, and in a very good location, close to the Tube and buses and nearby shopping, groceries and restaurants. The landlord was quickly available by phone and email, and she was quick to fix a problem that we were having with the water. Highly recommended. Excellent Sid 8/12/2017 12:51:00 PM
