A warm welcome from Denis and Hilary to Maison des Palmiers in the beautiful village of Bize Minervois.

After holidaying in the wonderful region of Languedoc several times we decided that this was where we wanted to spend our early retirement and to combine it with a business we are both very familiar with.

After a long search of the area and numerous viewings we finally came upon the village of Bize-Minervois and the beautiful Maison des Palmiers and realized that this was the place we had been searching for.

Denis worked in the hospitality industry for many years and trained as a chef and then became a hotel manager, managing both corporate and country house hotels throughout his native Scotland and the north of England. During his time as a chef he cooked for the royal family on many occasions.
Hilary hails from Leeds and after returning from a spell living in Oman, owned and ran a Coffee Shop in Bearsden in the suburbs of Glasgow for 25 years which became famous for Hilary’s home baking

We hope that we have the pleasure of welcoming you to Bize and sharing the delights of the beautiful Languedoc with you.
