We are retired teachers and have lived in France for the last six years. We live in an old farm house which we are still renovating. We've done the big jobs, but as always with any renovation there is more to do ! We have a lovely garden, lots of fruit trees and a potage. Spending time with us you will; help develop/improve language skills, experience French rural life, eat both French and English cuisine, learn renovation skills
