    I moved down to the PO in November 2020, buying a house built in 1975 with a pretty much original interior. This included an absolutely revolting green and orange bathroom with a bidet & cast iron tub. Clearly this had to go and so I started a search for a competent artisan in the area. Rob was recommended to me by various people I met, so I asked him to come round and quote.

    He was professional and polite on his first visit, and showed me photos of his previous work. The photographs were impressive, so we agreed upon a fair price.

    Rob did a great job, his attention to detail and the accuracy of his work is superb. He also put up with me being around & asking lots of questions related to the bathroom as well as questions related to some DIY work I was doing at the same time. He helped me out, advised me and even lent me his tools at times.

    The final result is better than I cold have hoped for at the start of the project. He finished on time and on budget, agreed to some extra jobs that I asked for help with along the way and was at all times professional and polite.

    I would heartily recommend Rob for any plumbing or electrical work

    The open plan en-suite in the master bedroom needed updating and to be made more accessible for my father. Rob recommended and collected products and installed perfectly whilst resolving the usual issues encountered when demoing previous work. Rob found solutions easily and paid attention to detail when it came to the accessibility of the shower for my father who cannot walk so well.

    Completed swift and to a high standard I would recommend Rob highly.

    We highly recommend Robert Morley for the quality of his work, professionalism, reliability and communication. We will certainly use him again in the future. We needed Robert for the renovation of our outdated bathroom. The last renovation had been done over 27 years ago. Robert provided excellent advice regarding what was needed and where to get the equipment. He took care of the plumbing, the electricity, the tile work and the suspended ceiling. He kept us abreast daily through emails and whatsapp with pictures of the work being done. It was a great experience working with him from start to finish.

    Totally reliable , professional , friendly , sound advice and very reasonably priced .
    Thank you Rob
    Would recommend to anyone and everyone

    Rob has recently completed a renovation at our home in Arles-sur-Tech. This entailed gutting and completely revamping two bathrooms and a guest loo. From our initial contact, on the recommendation of friends, Rob was at all times extremely helpful. He came with us to suppliers and his input was invaluable as well as his much superior command of French ! His advise on material selection and best quality products to use was really helpful and ensured we were very happy with the finished result.

    Once the work started we were so impressed with Rob’s attention to detail, his finishes are wonderful and all was done to the schedule we discussed. His company was also much enjoyed and his great knowledge of the area.

    We have no hesitation in recommending Rob for any home renovations , his workmanship is second to none.

    Rob has done a number of jobs for us over quite a few years. The first and largest was removal of the 1960s oil-fired central heating from our maison secondaire and its replacement with reversible aircon in the three most-used rooms, with electric heating for the remainder of the house, carried out in the winter of 2012-13. At the same time he replaced the original breaker board with a modern one that includes RCDs for all circuits both old and new; added some new sockets in the kitchen, and renovated others that, in the French way, were coming out of the wall; and sorted out a couple of plumbing problems. I was very impressed from the start with his willingness to discuss options; he advised us on what to buy in the way of electric radiators; his estimate was very clear, comprehensive, and reasonably priced; and he found a suitable contractor to install the aircon. When the time came to do the work, he firstly removed the ghastly old radiators, a lot of steel (!!) pipework, and the extremely heavy oil-fired boiler, and patched the plaster where the radiators had hung. He then installed the new wiring and electric radiators – and also tidied up some of the trunking left by the aircon contractor, which did not meet Rob’s very high standards of neatness. And he left everywhere really clean and tidy. All in all, we are still really pleased with the outcome.

    Over the years since then, Rob has dealt with various smaller plumbing problems – replacement of the hot water cylinder, fixing a continuously running loo, and on another occasion a leaking loo waste connection, fixing a leaking connection to a shower mixer, finding an outdoor leak… He’s a great person to work with – I can email the nature of the problem with a couple of photos, post him a bunch of keys if I am in Scotland rather than France, and a week or so later he emails back to say that everything has been sorted. The only problem with this way of working is that I don’t get to actually chat with Rob very often, such chats being one of the “fringe benefits” of working with him – and not only because he knows so much about what is going on locally and in the wider PO!

    All in all, I can recommend Rob without reservation.

    Rob has just finished doing the tiling, plumbing and electrics for us as part of fitting a new kitchen. He worked alongside with Joe of SARL Plateau Acrylique who built and installed all the units and worktops.
    Rob has done several jobs for us over the last couple of years covering all.aspects of plumbing and electrics, including repacing an old water heater, replacing WCs and taps and installing new circuits to our pool house.
    He always works to a high professional standard.
    I have no hesitation in recommending them both for any work you may have.

    I found myself with one leaking shower and another very tired bathroom , both needing a total refurb. Having sought advice from several reputable people it became instantly clear that Rob was the man to deal with. He was crystal clear in terms of everything I needed and provided a detailed estimate which was very impressive.

    Rob then took me to a dealership to source all the tiles and fittings . This was invaluable and extremely cost efficient as he directed me wisely! The work commenced, and there were daily updates and pictures.

    Rob is a tremendously skilled craftsman and most importantly a perfectionist. The end results are stunning and I’m absolutely delighted. The entire process was made painless as a result of Rob’s honesty and integrity. He is a total gentleman and I was on a winner from the moment I engaged his services.

    Thank you for all Rob.

    Recently Rob completed the renovation of our Apartment in Perpignan. This was completely reformed with suspended ceilings , lighting, new bathroom and kitchen, and a complete electrical revamp. We are delighted with the results which has transformed an old 70’s apartment into a stylish and modern dwelling .
    5 stars to Rob who worked in the height of the heatwave (before the a/c was fitted!), and even helped move our furniture. Very pleased with a high quality professional job. Highly recommended.

    We found Rob via PO Life’s website after purchasing a holiday apartment in Perpignan in June 2018. Rob has a very approachable and knowledgable manner and is not only very professional in his dealings and workmanship, but also a great source to “ bounce ideas off” from his unique status of being both a qualified plumber and electrician.

    We commenced working with Rob on a series of smaller jobs, such as running additional electric sockets for kitchen appliances, fitting our new cooker and ceiling fans.

    He has just completely removed and fitted a new bathroom and toilet covering all aspects of plumbing, tiling and electrics. We are already planning our next project for him.

    We have communicated with Rob throughout each job using Watts app, receiving up to date photos regularly, so being in England while the work has been completed has not been at all stressful. We would highly recommend Rob’s services.
