Sarah Ewing and her partner Dan bring a wealth of experience to their role as LBV property managers. Dan is a reliable and enthusiastic hard worker and prior to moving to France, he was head gardener in charge of twenty-one acres of garden consisting of formal, informal and managed wilderness areas. Sarah can act or work on her own initiative with flexibility and creativity as needed. With two years of experience in Paris as a housekeeper in a previous life, her French language skills are ideal for helping their local clients.
Dan and Sarah moved to France permanently in early 2014, along with their six-year-old twins. They are now available to help local clients and look forward to hearing from you if you need help in their area.
“Selling your house during COVID in the Aude Region could have been very difficult to do, not to mention sorting the contents and taking to charity shops, then shipping what I needed back home to UK. I could only visit France once during this time for 3 days between lockdowns. This was not a problem for Sarah and Dan. All necessities were executed successfully and without fuss. Even sourcing a Notaire for me who could speak English. I cannot speak highly enough of this couple and wish them both every success.”

“Sarah and Dan made an immediate and lasting impact from the moment they took over the management of our property in 2014. Standards of property presentation and guest relations improved significantly, and guest feedback has been 100% positive under their tenure. They have proven to be proactive and incredibly supportive partners. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.”
“Sarah is very prompt with all correspondence and creative in finding solutions when necessary. When a guest broke an antique bedside table, before I even knew about it, Sarah had been to a brocante and sourced three replacement options. The replacement was in place in time for the new guests – most efficient!”
“Dan and Sarah really excel in a crisis. Last year there was an almighty storm which collapsed the septic tank. Our guests were on their second night of fourteen in a house that was going to be uninhabitable for the rest of their holiday, if not the rest of the summer season. Within 24 hours the group had been rehoused, with Dan and Sarah having arranged for a season long temporary solution for the septic tank in place. They sorted everything without me having to get on a plane and met the deadline of the next set of guests’ arrival 12 days later.”
“We started talking to Dan and Sarah when we were house hunting in 2017 for a second home with the plan to use it ourselves for holidays and for rentals. We felt really supported with all the administrative aspects. The house, pool and garden are always immaculate, and they react very quickly to solve any issues that arise during the rental season. Testament to this is that all guests rated their holidays as 5* in their online reviews last year.”
