The dream of freedom
A childhood dream has come true; the dream of owning our own business in the country of our dreams – France.
After 20 years in the absolute top of the world’s restaurant and hotel business, we have now met with the challenge and bought a great stone house from the19th century in the south west of France. Here we will realize our dream and run a really, really good Bed & Breakfast.
Sometimes all the pieces fall into place. On a vacation, we found this wonderful house in southwestern France. It was the perfect match! It was time to make the leap and finally run our own business and work for ourselves.
The place is unique and not far from Bergerac. In Campsegret, a small village situated in the Dordogne valley in the south western French countryside, among corn fields and vineyards you find La Libertie, our place. Fittingly, La Libertie is an old-fashioned spelling for freedom.
The house is surrounded by a garden, lush with flowers and green pastures. In the small pond our ducks swim. Here you find peace and quiet.
Welcome to La Libertie!
We run La Libertie
