We moved to this corner of South West France in 2020 having fallen in love with the area on a cycling holiday a couple of years before. When we came on a house search, covering some 3500km and 27 properties in a week, Laborie was the only contender. It took a year to complete the purchase and we subsequently sold up in the UK to make our permanent move.
Our idea from the start was to set up a low-impact campsite, to allow people to enjoy and discover this protected little valley, a perfect location to relax outdoors and appreciate nature undisturbed.
We live in the farmhouse full time and the next stage of our project is to convert one of the out buildings into a one-bedroomed gîte.
