We are an English family in France. We run our own businesses. A holistic fitness company and a building business.
We are - an ex. U.K. Art/ sculpture teacher and fitness instructor and professional building engineer, 2 small boys fluent in French and 2 cats.

Bonus if you are in into footy the boys would love a game or 2 ;-)
