About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Andrew Lowkis

We have been here in France since July 2014 after years of planning the dream. We looked at so many properties before settling on Les Saules and we haven't looked back. We left behind stressful jobs in the UK to embrace the quiet life here.

Why this location? The Midi climate here is second only to the South of France for sun. The country side is stunning and the location is so peaceful and tranquil.
Unique benefits of property We offer high-end gites with the 'get away from it all' location. The pool is so inviting on those long hot summer days.
