They dreamt of opening a bed and breakfast at the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains near Toulouse in the south of France, but ran out of money.

Concerned friends found them dead in their home in Boudrac, a small village with 130 people, on Sunday after they went missing for several days.

John and Kathryn bought their former holiday home for £200,000 last summer and planned to transform it into a bed and breakfast.  

Money problems stopped the project after they spend months and all their savings converting the home and out-house into guest accommodation.

It is understood the couple were happy together.

A neighbour said: “They were very nice people who would often be out walking their dog.

“They mixed well with everyone else in the village, including joining in games of petanque. They were very typical, nice British people.

“People said they had stopped hearing their dog barking, and that’s why there were fears something might have happened.”

Local prosecutor Christophe Amunzateguy said Kathryn had been dead for several days when she was found in the home. 

He added: “Wounds were also found on her body – there were signs of strangulation and blows.”

John was found hanging in the outhouse with a note, which allegedly referenced their money trouble.

Mr Amunzateguy confirmed a murder investigation had been opened.
