We are Murray and Julie, a middle aged couple who have lived in Normandy for the past 14 years. We run a dog grooming business situated in a small town and live in a traditional colombage house in the countryside.
We are 5 miles from the town of Lisieux where there is a railway station. We are about 1 hour from the landing beaches and 35 mins from the coastal towns of Deauville and Honfleur.
