Amar & I met way back in 1980 at university in Edinburgh. Amar went on to work in education and I went down the path of retail management.
15 years on we decided to work for ourselves and we left city life to build up a small hotel & restaurant in the Scottish Borders.
We thoroughly enjoyed every minute ( well, most of them anyway!) but 10 years, much renovation, 4 stars, several awards and 2 children later we knew we needed to move on.
And so we set up home at Les Crouquets. Exactly how we came to arrive in this wonderful corner of rural France after spending a whole year searching, is another story altogether! (see Sept!)
Suffice to say that for us living here is a breath of fresh air - we are truly at home and we're sure you will be too.
We look forward to sharing it with you soon!
Amar, Elena, Emma & Alistair

DOMAINE des CROUQUETS
The Grapevine is the place where you'll find all the snippets of information, useful or otherwise that don't really have a place in the main site. Not a blog or newsletter, more an informal account of our French country life & what goes on behind the scenes at Les Crouquets in the Perigord Noir!
