We are a British family (mum, dad and 1 daughter0, we moved to France in 2013. We are living in a rural area of the Charente, approx an hour from Bordeaux. The property is a 17 century farmhouse, with 2 adjoining properties and a pool. We are fun loving people who love all sorts of things including films, music, art and creative activities. We also love spending time outside and looking after our two dogs, 4 guinea pigs and one cat. We enjoy keeping fit (not much time for that at the moment though!) It's fun here. Between us we speak English, good German, fluent Spanish...but not a lot of French! We like to think we are easy going and open-minded and pretty hard-working. Come and give us a hand!
