How to create and share holiday homes that could not be more different.

In 2007, we made our dream come true: We acquired a 19th century country house in South-West France. Since then, we have worked tirelessly to lovingly redesign it to create what is our idea of a home to share with friends and family. While restoring this beautiful house, we keenly conserved its traditional Quercy character. We were so happy in our delightful, open living space that we started to invite holiday makers into our comfortable guest rooms at LA STINOISE


We also created the peaceful gardens, which had been negleted for many years. Trees and shrubs, lavender, fruit trees, vegetable patch, strawberries to pick at your leisure and various seating areas were added over time. Finally, we built the 12m x 5m heated swimming pool which can be enjoyed for playing or serious swimming alike.


In 2014 we made the decision to purchase a townhouse in the centre of Lincoln; fascinated by the modern, eco-friendly design and very pleased to find a quiet spot so close to the hustle and bustle of the cathedral quarter. THE BEEHIVE now invites visitors for a weekend, a holiday or while on a business trip.  


Both houses could not be more different - which is exactly what we love about them - and hope you will enjoy them too!
