Our Story

We are Ross and Joni, a husband and wife team who are living the dream we dreamt whilst busy with city lives in Edinburgh, Scotland.

We have a keen interest in property and property management having worked in the property industry for 20 years combined. This, paired with a real passion for travel and exploring 'off the beaten track', meant our decision to escape to a new life in rural Dordogne was definitely a dream that we felt was realistic and achievable.

Without looking back, in December 2018, we arrived in rural France to begin our adventure full of energy and enthusiasm. With a lot of hard work and some luck along the way, we created 'Voilà Villas France' and soon had a small portfolio of managed properties in the local area. Our luck continued with successful holiday seasons and many happy guests over the few years that followed. Much to our delight, business has progressed just as we'd hoped!

Now, 5 years later, we're continuing our focus on creating a very special and unique selection of self catering holiday homes, gites and villas for you to enjoy, concentrating on making sure that there is a property to suit everyone. Becoming more settled and confident in our surroundings we have fallen in love with France as a whole and have found that the slower French way of living is suiting us well. With our confidence growing and language progressing we've begun to delve deeper into the history, the culture, the food and wine and all that the 3,000,000 people who decide to visit Dordogne each year love.

We are dedicated to making our guests' stay a memorable one and hope to meet you here one day soon!
