French Property News, March 2012

In this issue I have written an interesting success story, more satisfying as it concerns an old friend and university colleague, Jonathan Healey. Jonathan and his partner Matthieu Bazan have opened a superb boutique hotel in Argel├Ęs-sur-mer, in a converted maison de maitre in the heart of the old village, opposite the parish church. They offer double en-suite rooms and organic food. All the rooms have heating and air condiioning, individually controlled. You can see more on http://

Jonathan is an established wine writer and completed his studies in oenology at UC Davis (California) and in addition to offering wine courses based at the hotel has he lectured at Perpignan University and Girona University as part of their wine and tourism programmes. He also advises and creates websites for many local and distant wine producers, with clients all over France. See
