Rose was thoroughly recommended by close friends and how right they were. She has proved herself invaluable to us in so many ways. She is completely honest, well organised and efficient in what she does. What really impresses us is the way in which she uses her initiative, when something is amiss, which we particularly appreciate as we are often at home in England and the problem is in France. She can do almost anything. She is cheerful, calm and capable and we are delighted to recommend her.
We have known Rose Gillon for the past two years and she has helped us maintain a holiday house in France. She is a delightful personality, totally honest and dependable and provides a very high standard of work. After her visits either for maintenance or for cleaning she sends us a photograph which are always helpful and re-assuring. I am very happy to recommend her.
Rose is not only a delightful person, but highly intelligent and efficient in everything she undertakes for us, be it sorting the techno-world of malfunctioning Wi Fi, the crisis of a rip in the pool liner just before the arrival of holiday tenants, or simply calling by the house to check after winter storms. She does it all effectively with calm reassurance. We count ourselves very fortunate that she is always on hand to look after things for us.
We cannot recommend Rose more highly. She is an absolute delight to have around and both her efficiency and very high standard of work are quite simply second to none. The house feels absolutely lovely after Rose has been and we feel extremely lucky indeed to have found her.
Rose has been caring for our holiday home for 2 years now and we couldn’t be happier. She is reliable, responsive and always willing to go that extra mile when needed. It can be difficult to find people you can trust in a foreign country – we have been so lucky to find Rose and Chez soi en Quercy!”
Rose has been an invaluable life line for the past 18 months. We spend several consecutive months of the year away and have compete confidence in leaving absolutely everything in her capable hands. All of her visits are followed by an informative email and photos where applicable. Rose comes in just once a month to clean when we are at home and keeps on top of everything. The house has never been so clean! She is truly professional, trustworthy and a joy to have around!
We have had the pleasure of working with Rose since 2016, without whom the practicalities of owning a home in France would be insurmountable.
Rose assists us with: monthly cleaning, maintenance, EDF readings, general administration, translation, general advice on issues such as telephone and internet services and deciphering French daily life. In times of emergency, it was Rose that we turned to: a water pipe burst and Rose responded immediately, even so far as to ensure that our insurance claim was properly submitted. Rose also supported us during our renovation project, sending updates and photo-journaling the progress. But her consideration extends far beyond an official role: she shared books with my children throughout last summer, delivering them in a basket like a magical book fairy!
Rose’s thoughtfulness and pragmatism is a rare find! We look forward to her visits and emails! Chez soi en Quercy is our peace of mind in France and we truly look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Rose.
