La Tuilerie de Chazelle, Burgundy - Gîte
About Us

We are Sue Nixon and Cees van Halderen - an English/Dutch couple. Before we came to France we were both engineers working for multi-national companies but a few years ago we decided to use our skills elsewhere and to set up on our own.

We have always been avid travellers and we have both travelled for our work and for pleasure, visiting almost every continent in the world, but somehow we kept coming back to France and to the Burgundy area in particular. After a long search for just the right place, we finally settled here in Cormatin in 2005.

Cees likes running, cycling, reading and listening to jazz and classical music, whilst Sue enjoys pottering in the garden, cooking and watching films. Sue likes all kinds of techy things and she built this and a number of other websites. Both of us love sharing our broad knowledge and experience of the area with guests who come to stay. We look forward to welcoming you to our little piece of South Burgundy in the very near future.

Alongside the gites, we have a small business that offers services to newcomers to the area or people with holiday homes. We offer help with finding the right person to do any necessary jobs around the house, help with French bureaucracy, we also offer gardening services, security checks and odd job work.

We both keep blogs about our life here, if you are interested you can click on the links in the menu on the right-hand side of this page.
