La Résidence was set up 30 years ago and has been a family-run business ever since. We cover all of France and we specialise in character properties.

The directors of La Résidence are husband and wife team Dominic and Rebecca Hilton. They live, with their 2 young daughters, on Dartmoor, in the South West of the UK.

They’ve always worked together, having met in their previous careers as organisers of Polar expeditions. They’ve ditched the balaclavas for berets (sorry) and find that trips to France are, on the whole, simpler to organise than those to the Canadian Arctic.

Dominic has been the sales director at the business for 8 years now. Dominic spent much of his childhood in France and has worked and studied in Toulouse, Lille and Bordeaux. He has a degree in French and Italian. Rebecca is also a Francophile having spent many years as a ski instructor in the French Alps. Her background in digital marketing means she looks after all of the the online aspects of the business.

The office is located in the small market town of Moretonhampstead, in the middle of the Dartmoor National Park. We are always very happy to have visitors to the office, so if you’d like to come in for a coffee and a chat we’d love to meet you.
