The Team/L’Equipe


La chatelaine, the owner, the boss! Divides her time between France and London – and possibly anywhere from Mexico to Manchester, delivering her consultancy work.


Our ‘virtual’ administrator, gite expert in the Lot. In charge of listings and availability.


Pool man par excellence. You’ll see him usually on a Friday keeping the pool pristine for your pleasure. First point of contact if Sue’s not around. If he can’t sort the problem, he’ll know a man who can!


Our wonderful lady who ‘does’ (sounds nicer than femme de menage don’t you think?) – in command of housekeeping, preparing the house for your arrival and then putting it all back in order once you’ve gone.


Our gardener whose lawn-mowers, strimmers and pruning shears keep Le Colombier’s lawns, shrubs and trees thrving in even the most challenging weather.


Visiting garden expert and supplier of interior decoration advice (and implementation). Frequent visitor and guinea pig for Clare’s table d’hote menus!

On a stay at Chateau Colombier you may see some or all of these people who all work hard to make your stay the best it can be.
