Rental property owners
Lovingly and painstakingly restored by owners Bob and Barbara, this cottage was once just a barn. Bob worked on the house himself and in fact they lived here for many happy years. They have a restaurant in Wales (which is now run by their son) and Barbara is a keen cook.

They are both still local and frequently stay at the house when seeing friends in the village. If they are in Roquebrun they will usually pop in to say hello.
