About Julie Smith
Having purchased the villa & apartment in 2005 and following a search all around France. Julie wanted a change of life and we decided that this was the perfect place to be as it was early in the development of tourism. Malcolm continued to run his business in London and returns as much as this allows. We enjoyed the French way of life and wanted a bolthole here in this beautiful and natural part of France.

Why Julie Smith chose Fontiès-d'Aude
It was exactly perfect for our purposes which allowed us to have a source of income and a seperate apartment for us to live in. During the summer we rent out the entire villa and during the quiet times we are able to offer a B&B Option to enhance our income.
What makes this Villa unique
Being nearby we are able to take care of the exterior facilities and able to offer very informed recommendations of all local facilities. Also resolve issues quickly if anything goes wrong - which is very rare
