  • Description


    We are an English couple from the Cheshire region of the UK. Robert is 52 and myself Suzanne 51. We ran pubs in the UK upto moving down here in October 2017. We enjoy visiting and exploring the local countryside, and will quite often just get in the car and go for a drive. We are very thrifty and we are always on the lookout for a bargain, or something that we can use for a different purpose. We also enjoy cooking and baking, which of course we did a lot of in our pubs.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are an English couple wanting to learn as we go along. With the language and a building project. We are new to living in France ourselves, even though we have had the house for 15 years. We are looking forward to exploring the area around us. We try and use any item that we already have to work with, whether in our building work or to make into something useful. We are also looking forward in learning from our workaways from gardening to lanquage.
