Our names are Megan and Philip and we purchased Les Remparts in August 2016. We have travelled widely throughout France but chose to settle in the south-west following encouragement from special friends living in the area, our love of the the wonderful food and drink and of course the weather! The area is also really easy to reach from the UK.
It took us well over a year to find and buy Les Remparts. We particularly love it’s ‘hidden’ location, the stunning views from the property, and the village atmosphere. Gensac is a real gem!
