The Renovation

Les Marguerites has offered some unique challenges to the family.  The property was unoccupied for 50 years and although the general structure was good a major renovation would be required to make it both habitable and suitable for a luxury Chambre D'hote

Antoinette took on the management of the renovation which included redesigning the layout, working closely with the builders, ordering materials and retaining control of the finances - all this coupled with ensuring that the children's transition into French life was as easy as possible.  

Living 13km away and with our children at different schools, with different timetables and days off, it became a major part of Antoinette's job to ensure they were all looked after.  Unfortunately, Keith was traveling regularly abroad on business, to earn the money for the renovation and to cover the day to day living expenses, critical as the renovation costs soared.  "From the outset we knew we would be pushed to our limits, but we also knew that by working as a strong family team we could achieve our goals."

"We have been very fortunate to have Ian Graham, an English surveyor who carried out the initial survey on the property offering guidance and expert advice throughout the project build.  We have also been very lucky to employ Chris, an English builder, who settled in The Languedoc some 8 years before and who's local French building techniques and experitse has enabled us to restore Les Marguerites to its former glory. 

We have employed local plumbers and electricians and they have been fantastic, delivering a first class result.  We have also found tremendous support amongst the local community. 

We have created the picture galleries below to give you an idea of what has been involved.
