Hi, We re and english family. Myself and two daughters, 21 and 17. We live on 4 hectares, have à horse, chickens, Oswald the dog and keewee the cat.
We ve been in France for 20 years, I work as à carpenter and practice Yoga, méditation. Our hse is an old farm hse over looking the beutifull médiévale village of Najac. We ve an swimming pond (summer only,or not if your Hardy). Our diet is comprehensive, but mainly végétarien. We re non religieux, but all is acepted.
Najac has à non profit café /arts centre, with great music and performances, all year round and à few bars and restaurants. See horloge najac.
Walks are amaseing here with wonder full wild life, buzzards, boar, dear and falcons. The countryside is wooded and hilly with large rivers (great for fishing or gazeing at the ripples).
