Meet our wonderful owner Eric!

Meet our wonderful owner Eric!

10 Mar 2014 BY Dominique Wells

Not only is Eric a great cook (there’s a delectable selection of his menus on offer for our clients) but he’s also a master at building restoration. Each year that we have featured his wonderful ten-bedroom manor house in the Dordogne (Manoir de Sourzac, ref. DL112) Eric has made a wonderful change, from an entertaining mural of Cyrano de Bergerac in one of the bedrooms to installing a very Zen bathroom with large circular tub overlooked by a striking bronze statue of Buddha. This year, the twelth, he has gone a lot further. Two large living areas have been extended from the existing already spacious sitting and dining rooms to create an amazing entertainment space – each stage of the restoration has been scrupulously supervised by Eric himself, from the specially trellised panelling over the radiators to the exposed stone walls and majestic fireplaces. The new indoor space is well matched outside by its huge covered terrace off the kitchen seating twenty people, and many other terraces all around the house and pool. A really memorable place for a large family holiday – we have a lot of clients who can vouch for that!
