About Your Host

Diane Best is originally from a village in Scotland. As a child, French friends of her parents made a lasting impression — she always had at the back of her mind that one day she would live in France.

In 2005, Diane’s first ever cycling trip brought her to Correze. Having a few extra days, on the spur of the moment she decided to look at some houses — mostly out of curiosity about the home life of rural French people than with any idea of buying. That changed when she discovered Le Bousquet farmhouse.

After designing a new interior, most holidays for many years involved supervising the renovation of the house and property. When the work was completed, Diane enjoyed having friends visit and much so, she decided to trade in her career as a successful television executive in New York for a life hosting cycling holidays in the French countryside.

The recent renovation of the small cottage next to the main house provided full-time accommodation for Diane and a new bike storage facility and workshop. Cycling has been a great way to meet people, make new friends and integrate with the local community. Of course, living in a small village, being willing and able to herd the odd cow is a major plus.
