“Thanks for the care you are giving the house - we appreciate it and can rest easy knowing that you are keeping an eye on things.” ~ David & Anne Smith. Australia

“Thank you very much for your hard work which has made the side & back of our cottage look better than we’ve ever seen it before." ~ Neil Evans. Wales.

"Just arrived at the house - the garden looks great! Rob has done a super job." ~ Wayne & Pam Goddard, Manchester

“Dear Rosie, Please thank Rob for the amazing job he did on the garden.” ~ Ian & Keren in South Wales.

"LBV Morbihan West has been looking after our place for two years now, and we are delighted with their general service. They are a professional, dedicated and experienced team that can see to any requests and calls for help. Although a simple house to clean and prepare, there are often little things that go wrong and they see to them, and report back. No dramas or worries. Whether it is house management or gardening duties, such a lovely 200 year old house needs the care, love and respect that they bring to the job. Well done Rosie and Rob, we are very grateful, especially as our health is not quite so good - but we remain confident that, in your busy schedule and with our flexibility for bookings, we will continue to be a fine team. I have been staying, living and working in France for some 45 years. It is re-assuring to have you both alongside us in looking after our beautiful house. A big thank you from Minnie & I." ~ Chaloner Chute, Chichester
