Trevor Morris is a 42 year old self-employed builder who lives and works in the Tarn et Garonne region of South West France, specialising in the renovation of farmhouses and barns for the mainly English Ex-pat population. He also writes a weekly column for the Dorset Echo in the UK, His columns are a witty and wry look at the similarities and differences between the two nations, as well as a diary of the trials and tribulations of living in and integrating into a foreign country.

He lives with his wife Sue and seven cats in a modern house that does not require renovation, dividing his time between working for exterior clients and renovating two ruins that he recently bought at the bottom of his garden. In his spare time he writes and feeds his goldfish, too numerous to mention.


The book :

‘Vive la Rénovation!’

He has gathered together a collection of his vignettes of French life into a book entitled ‘Vive la Rénovation!’  ISBN 0955633702 which is available directly from the author via, , through Amazon and various other internet sources, or can be ordered from any bookshop.

The book has proved exceptionally popular amongst Brits living in France who have shared many similar experiences, but is also going down well with holidaymakers and all people with an interest in France.

This is a review recently published in French Property News:

“Tales of relocation to France are plentiful but few are as entertaining as Vive la Rénovation! Builder Tevor Morris and his wife Sue relocate to South West France to start a new life and a new business. Offering building services to the native French as well as newly arrived ex-pats proves to be a perfect vantage point to observe the idiosyncrasies of both. With a rich sense of enjoyment and fun, the short, punchy chapters add to the feel of fast and acutely observed humour. This is one to be savoured.” French Property News December 2007


Languedoc & Provence Sun N°52 (July-August-September 2014)

You may have noticed that this issue covers the months of July, August and September. After much debate, discussions and sleepless nights, we have decided that the best way forward for Languedoc & Provence SUN would be to become a quarterly publication. In practice, this means that the magazine will now be published four times a year instead of six, each issue covering 3 months.

The main objective of the magazine has always been to provide quality articles and content about our region and its many attributes. Going quarterly will give us more time to research potential articles, interview interesting people, meet new contributors and gather topical and useful information for you our readers.

This new version will have more pages than the previous one, allowing us to increase the content of each issue, giving you more reading material in one piece.

You may have become familiar with our regular contributors, who do a fantastic job. I take this opportunity to thank them warmly for their valuable input and great imagination, whatever the topic. If you have a little bit of spare time occasionally and share our love of writing, I’m always on the lookout for good quality articles about our area: it could just be your own story, or the portrait of someone you know, a beautiful place, an interesting festival. Whatever the idea, let
me know about it, our next contributor could be you!

If you have any comments or suggestions, you can always email me. In the meantime, I hope you keep on reading the magazine; the kind comments we receive always make all the hard work worthwhile. Have a nice holiday!
