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
