Meet Your Hosts
Gordon and I are originally from Canada but have lived in Europe for over ten years. A few years ago, while cycling through Northern France we began to dream of owning a special place for our family and friends to gather. A series of coincidences led us to discover Le Macassar and we instantly fell in love with its history, its beautiful buildings, and courtyard garden.
Gordon is passionate about history and architecture. His restoration of the ancient wine cellar on the property was a labour of love.
I enjoyed a successful business career in Canada but since moving to Europe, I was able to pursue art full time! Here at Le Macassar, I am delighted to share my creative side both in the culinary delights that I will create for you and with my artwork that is often displayed in some of our rooms.
We look forward to welcoming you; whether you are here to visit the World War one monuments, go antique hunting or simply wish to enjoy a romantic getaway. We will create an experience that you will be talking about long after your vacation is over.
