Meet The Team
Luxury Dordogne Villas Ltd is a family business which was started in the recession in 1999, after securing a mortgage from a French bank. Not quite believing the “Qui” following the application, I emailed 4 times to check they really meant yes!
After many years of enjoyable holidays in the area, but always in holiday homes where the equipment and facilities were sub-standard, I wanted to offer our guests the best holiday experience I possibly could. I am continually reinvesting in La Grange and encourage our guests to offer feedback for suggestions on improvements.
Owner - Tracey
Our family home is in Salisbury, Wiltshire. I live here for most of the year and spend some of the winter months working at both holiday homes. My jobs include a variety of work from stocktaking, painting, staining, tiling, gardening, planting hedges and hedge trimming. To relax, I enjoy walking Holly, our elderly Golden Retriever, cycling and sampling the fantastic local wines & restaurants in the Dordogne.
Dave - Poolman
Dave has a challenging job looking after both, very well used pools. He prides himself on keeping the pools beautiful all season for our guests to enjoy. Please do not hesitate to chat to him about the pool or more general things about your holiday when he visits to clean the pool.
Nicky - Gardener
Originally from NZ, Nicky works hard looking after the gardens and cleaning Acabanes terraces early on changeover days.
Sue - Housekeeper
Sue owned a pottery business in Devon and now creates incredible Fairies, which can be purchased by guests. She also makes hearts and beautiful greetings cards. Sue has a beautiful, one bedroom gite for rental in Eymet for holidays. This is perfect if you require extra space for your group.
