What do you enjoy most about being a part of Bliss?

I love meeting new people and exploring new places. I like to think we’re different at Bliss; we care about our clientele. It’s often a difficult decision to sell a home and I feel at Bliss we offer a much more personal approach. This I enjoy.

Perfect Day in Gascony?

My perfect day starts with a walk through the vines in the sunshine, with my Border Collie, and ends on the terrace, sipping Armagnac, under the enormous glittering sky. In between, a long indulgent lunch with good friends and good wine is a must, with lots of laughter and chatter.

Secret Squirrel tip for a hot place to eat?

My current favourite is “ Le Carrousel Gourmand” in Fourcès. Lunching out is my hobby and it’s difficult to choose just one!
