  • Description


    We live in a rural grape growing area of SW France. Myself and wife along with our cat. We are both retired I was a chef for most of my working life my wife was inpayroll. We have an old frenchfarm house that was in poor state when we purchased over the last 11 years we have been doing it up so it would meet our needs when we retired,we have now been here full time 2 years. Our French is not great but we manage. We are close to 2 biggish cities Pau and Tarbes. Bordeaux is about 100 miles away. We have a local airport at Lordes but flights are basic from the uk. There are plenty of local wine growers where you can sample before you buy. Also restaurants are plentiful some very reasonable such as €12.50 for a very good 3 or 4 course lunch including wine. Spain is about a 2.5 hour drive and some of the best beeches about the same. You can be at the bottom of the ski slopes in less than an hour. During the summer months all swimming pools re open, and there are plenty of things to go and see / do from a Go Ape to a Little train round the Pyreneese.
