A little about Rick &Bruno
Belgium and Britain in France
We are an Anglo-Belgian couple and moved from Brussels to Montaut (Mont Aut in Occitan, the local language) in 2022 to start a new life and local tourist business. Bruno has a background in finance and tourism, and Rick in PR and marketing. We are both keen linguists (English, French, Russian, some Dutch, German, Spanish and even some Turkish) and nature lovers, and committed to helping guests get the most out of their holiday in this delightful corner of France.
A more sustainable way of life
Our motivation for moving to the Dordogne is to lead a quieter life and to connect more to nature. It's a work in progress, but our goal is to rely more on renewable energy (thanks to our solar panels); to
make more of what we use on a daily basis; to grow or produce more of our food (honey, eggs, fruit and veggies); and encourage biodiversity in our gardens.
