    Description

    We are a dynamic French-English couple, 70ish old. We speak English and French at home. We are retired, travel in winter and spend a lot of time outdoors when the weather permits to maintain our gardens, take care of our animals.
    The evenings are calm, music, reading conversation and exchanges, television. Many friends, an active social life. Paul is a musician, he plays classical piano, rock and blues.
    Participation in a club of amateur gardeners.
    We live 6km from a village of 2000habitants.
    We garden a lot, our land is 2 Ha including 3000m2 of vegetable gardens and pleasure. As well as young fruit trees. We regularly grow tomatoes, green beans, potatoes, pumpkins, courgette cucumbers and peppers.
    Paul is a good handyman, he works on a small house for our grandchildren on a miniature island on our pound..next step will be a green house. I'm better inside a actually on the way to redecorate one of our room.
