Our Team!

Run from a beautifully converted barn within Chateau grounds, our small team are individuals that are passionate about French property, knowledgeable about France and what it has to offer for luxury holiday rentals and enthusiastic about providing the quality and service that is often all too lacking in the busy modern world!

Our Mission Statement

Message from the M.D (literally)!

Director of Classic French Escapes - Michelle Denton

Michelle Denton is a qualified Barrister, who after practicing in London for 5 years, moved to South West France over 10  years ago for a sabbatical. The plan was for a year out but this rapidly turned into a desire to stay longer, Classic French Homes was created in 2006 - a niche agency specialising in the marketing of prestige properties in the Dordogne region of France.  Classic French Escapes is the luxury holiday rental side of this business.

"I became all too aware that although we have so many beautiful properties here in France and as a country it is such a popular place to visit, the marketing material used to advertise these properties was at best sadly lacking or at worst misleading. I  also knew from personal experience that when you organise a large holiday group and are looking for a luxury place to stay, there are so many questions that cannot be answered correctly by a sales person sitting hundreds of miles away who has never even visited the property in question. That is why at Classic French Escapes, we are passionate about every property we list, we complete a full take on and have a local 'Property Consultant' available to deal with all your enquiries and assist you throughout the booking process.  It is a system that works well - give us a try and I think you will agree!"

 All feedback welcome!

We constantly aspire to improve our methods!

In 2012 we were proud to have launched our new website with integrated booking, improved our virtual tours to include hot spots and have expanded our rental areas not only within the South West of France but starting with the 2012-2013 season we have been marketing an exclusive selection of luxury ski chalets in the chic ski resort of Meribel, in the Alps.

In 2013, we have expanded our wedding chateaux portfolio and are delighted to say that the wedding market here in South West France is booming. We have had many wonderful weddings this season!

To continually improve, we welcome all feedback and really do take it on board!
