Stéphanie

Background

From the north west of France, (La Baule), my background is in hotel management and tourism. I’ve always loved travelling and chose to come to the Gers because of its great location and easy pace of life.

Life before Gascony?

I lived for 13 years on the tropical island of St Lucia, managing a guesthouse by the beach with my husband.

How has Gascony changed you?

Driving in St Lucia was always a chaotic adventure. Here, I love the space, the empty roads and the beautiful landscape, as it’s so relaxing.

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

I love visiting the beautiful properties all around the Gers. We also have a great team, all complimentary to each other.

Secret Squirrel tip
for a hot place to eat?

“The Barbacane” restaurant in Lectoure is my favorite, always surprising and never disappointing.
In summer, the Tapas by the “Bouviers” has a fun relaxed atmosphere.

Funniest thing to have happened
to you in Gascony?

Being Karen’s neighbour!

Favourite local dish?

I love duck. Foie gras, magret, confit….. Yum!

Favourite time of year?

I love the summer when we go to swim in the lakes, and the landscape is so beautiful with the sunflowers.

Outside of Bliss?

Tennis! I play as often as I can. I also enjoy going for walks with my family and dogs.
