Your hosts, Karen and Robert, live on site and will be responsible for looking after you during your stay. There will always be someone on hand if there is anything you need.
Having spent many years working in senior marketing roles in the UK, Karen appreciates that holidays are important times to get away from the pressures and concerns that plague the daily working life and set up La Grange Terrou with the aim of creating an environment where clients can relax and get away from it all.
Karen has two passions in life, (apart from looking after her guests!), her horses and her garden. Sundays are sometimes her day off because that is when show jumping competitions take place, but daily she will be training in the sand school (if you have looked at us on Google Earth that’s what the big rectangular brown shape is). The white shape is the polytunnel, next to the vegetable patch, and the source of the wonderful home grown fruit and veg that contribute to meal times - no pesticides here!
Robert is another keen gardener and also keen on all things mechanical, especially his tractors. Robert was previously a property developer in London and can turn his hand to most things which is lucky because there is always something that needs doing on a property this size!!!. Thankfully he has some fairly major machinery to help us: Muscles is his telehandler, so christened because it gets called on to do the tough lifting, shoving and carrying jobs around the place. Precious is his mini-digger, so called because it is temperamental runs on love and frequent attention. Big Trev and little Trev are the tractors and with an acre of lawns and 12 acres of fields they are kept busy.
Karen and Robert share their home with two border collies, Blue and Sam, Heidi a Labrador cross, three horses Rio, Otto and Pella and two cats, Betty and Bob. Needless to say, we welcome animal lovers.
