My wife and I first came to Rennes-le-Château in 1995, after reading the book "The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail" by Baigent, Leigh and Lincoln. It was love at first sight.
In 1998 we bought a domaine called Les Labadous, one mile south of Rennes-le-Château. We started a Chambres d'Hotes and have received since then thousands of guests. Pilgrims, adventurers, writers, camera teams and many, many groups.
I have read hundreds of books about this mysterious place, guided numerous persons and groups in the area and wrote three books about Rennes-le-Château.
In the past 15 years I have made over 20.000 pictures in the south of France. And some of them really special. Clustered in 5 groups: Rennes-le-Château, Mary Magdalene, The Cathars, the Knights Templar and ORB's, those shining ligthbulbs. A relatively new phenomenon.
I love to guide people around. I am currently writing 4 new books.
I am also very much interested in the wonderful, but sometimes awful, relationships between men and women. I wrote a book about it and advise men and women who have trouble understanding each other.
