Home & Garden Services

20 years in professional property maintenance

About us

Hi, my name is Daren Luckings and in September 2020, my wife Gilly and I put our dream of 10 years into action and relocated to the wonderful village of Maurens, just north of Bergerac in the Dordogne.

With some 20 years professional experience in property and grounds maintenance, including 18 years as an Estate Manager on a large, private estate in England, I know how maintaining a home and garden, whether it’s a primary residence or second home can often be a worry…whatever it’s size.

Finding the right professional to fix problems that arise or to carry out regular maintenance can be a real challenge too.

That’s where we can help.

Established in October 2020, Bergerac Home & Garden Services provides a range of high quality maintenance services and solutions to a range of property issues to residents within a 25km radius of Bergerac.

Gilly looks after the admin and marketing and is often the first point of contact…so if your dream home isn’t living up to it’s name, take a look at Our Services and get in contact to arrange for a free quote.

We understand how important dreams are, so let us take the worry out of maintaining your property and help you get the very best from your home in this beautiful area.

Our reviews

Daren and Gilly are superstars. We couldn't be happier with everything they have helped us with at our house in Bergerac.
We are delighted with every single aspect of the work carried out, which included interior refurbishment, indoor and outdoor maintenance, decorating and garden work. Moreover, they are wonderful, kind people who are a pleasure to work with.
We couldn't recommend them highly enough.

Sam & James

We are so pleased to have been introduced to the services of this company. They excel in every field of maintenance, and no job is too small or task too hard.
Whether it be plumbing, carpentry or simply putting together furniture, or attending to the garden and pool, we cannot fault their service or recommend them highly enough. A fabulous team and a great company.

We recently bought a house in the Bergerac area. Both Gilly and Daren have been invaluable.
Gilly's local knowledge and Daren's work on our new home.
We have been very pleased with the carpentry and garden work. Daren seems to have a solution for every problem.
We would be happy to recommend Daren & Gilly.


We have known Darren and Gill for seventeen years and frequently visited the estate that Darren maintained in England.

Darren is a perfectionist and very competent. We have no hesitation is highly recommending him for all garden and home maintenance.
