The Owners

We're Pippa and Marcus Evans. We moved to France from the South of England in Oct 2016. We've spent the first year here renovating parts of the main building and adding a pool for our guests. We've also explored the wider area and local restaurants together and with friends and family and will happily provide recommendations of places to visits, things to see and places to eat.


We live on site with two labradors and a cat. Marcus is a fluent French speaker with a passion for cooking and Pippa runs her own business as a Virtual PA and is enjoying countryside living.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about staying at La Merise or want to know more about the area.
