La Famille Evans – a family partnership of French speaking Brits, comprising Greg (brother no 1),
Nick (no 3) and his wife Isobel.
All three had lived and worked in the London area, then variously chose to head to pastures new.
At different times all three of the partners have spent some years working in the French Alps,
then in the spring of 2000 they purchased what was to become Les Volets Bleus where, with their
wide-ranging mixture of skills and experience, they have been running the business successfully ever since.
We have a choice of airports less than two hours' drive from us (see table below)
