Friendly & reliable property and garden maintenance in the Dordogne

Meet the Team



A friendly and professional husband and wife team who live in the 24800 area of the Dordogne.

For ten years, we've run our own gites and also owned second holiday homes in France. So we thought it was about time that we put these experiences to good use, and so we set up our business to bring peace of mind services to gite and second home owners in the Dordogne region.

A Bit About Us

our backgrounds

We both come from professional backgrounds.

Mark has a management background of over 30 years experience, and Denise was a qualified nurse prior to spending the last ten years running her own businesses in the UK and now in France.

We've owned our house in the lovely Périgord Vert region of the Dordogne for over ten years, and since November 2018 we have been lucky enough to re-locate here permanently.

Over those ten years, we have experience of running our own property as a gite, and also as a holiday home owner living in the UK. We believe this gives us some valuable experiences and insights into helping you to remotely and successfully manage your own French holiday home and garden when you're not in France.

We're both hardworking and trustworthy and we will look after your second home and garden with the same love and care as we do our own.


Before we moved out to France permanently, we spent many unsuccessful years trying to find a reliable caretaker to look after our French property while we were in the UK.

We even had the misfortune of engaging 'caretakers' who billed us every month but who, it turned out, didn't ever visit our house!

So having once been in your shoes, when we arrived in France we decided to set up our company to give peace of mind to fellow gite and second home owners who struggle like we did to find trustworthy professionals who care as much  about your property as you do yourself.

We know there's nothing worse than arriving on a short stay in your holiday home only to have to spend hours doing cleaning and gardening because your caretaker hasn't been doing what you thought they were!
