Designer Sue Culligan lives in France with her architect husband Culli and two dogs - Golden Retriever Buddy and Bernese Mountain dog Billie.

Sue runs knitting and crochet holidays in France and spends much of her time adding texture and colour to their home with her colourful designs. The patterns are available to buy on KnitKits, along with wooden yarn bowls and unique pieces of furniture.

In his spare time Culli is a keen wood turner and makes beautiful yarn bowls from locally sourced wood.

They also own and manage two holiday homes in South West France.

Verdun is an elegant town house in St Jean d'Angely which can accommodate up to 6 guests. See details here.

The Barn is a lovely old converted barn in the peaceful countryside close to St Jean d'Angely. It sleeps 14 people and makes the perfect holiday home for large groups. See details here.
