About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Dawn Camilli

We are Dawn and Mark Camilli, originally from Aberdeen and having moved progressively south until arriving in France in 2004. We converted an old farm complex into a home for ourselves and a small complex of gites which we have had the pleasure of running for the past 10 years! Fresh veg from the garden is always on offer as well as Mark's now infamous courgette curry!
