Couple, musician and engineer, two small dogs, large house and garden in a small village. Peaceful area in south west France. One hectare of garden and woods. No public transport but bicycles available so you can cycle to the local towns.
You will have the chance to interact with local French people. Tuition in music, wood turning and wrought iron work is also available.
