ABOUT THE OWNERS
Susie & James Wetton
We met when working in Ski resorts in the Haute Savoie, we had a dream many years ago to convert an old school house into a Chambres d’hôtes in the Corrèze – many years later we are making our dream a reality by opening Domaine du Pignoulet and renting the house out to families or groups. We have lived in London, Essex and Bedford since we married and have 2 grown up sons.
James worked in the city after a brief spell in the army and then completed 4 ski seasons working as a Chalet chef and Ski guide. Since our travels we returned to the UK to marry and have a family, James has worked in business since then, the accent has always been on Client development and working closely with people.
Following a degree in Sports Studies Susie took a ‘gap’ year and went to work in Les Arcs. 6 years later having travelled and worked extensively she returned to the UK. Her experience involved catering including 2 seasons in commercial kitchens. She also worked as Resort manager & ski-guide. Working overseas included 7 months in Turkey for Sunsail, working and travelling around Australia, 6 ski seasons in the French alps and 2 summer seasons in Normandy and the Dordogne.
