Why Terje Stig Knudsen chose Cotignac
We spent a lot of our time travelling to the South of France - Provence and the charming village called Cotignac. There we have an old house which used to be an Silkfactory - La Magnanerie in French. We love the area because it is always nice and sunny weather (from our point of wiev) - coming from the cold and rainy weather in Norway. This are some of the reasons why we bought this fantastic house many years ago. We have also built a nice swimming pool and restored most of the house. During the autumn we also have som drapes which tastes nice and sweet. Please enjoy it.
