  • Description


    We moved to France 16 years ago with 2 young children and another one on the way we wanted our children to grow up in the country side and to have a stress free life. We ditched the rat race for a simple life. We live in an old farm house and have a holiday property we let out and a large plot of land to keep chickens and sheep and grow our own vegetables. There are only three of us at home now so we have spare rooms perfect for work aways. We are in rural France 2.5kms away from a village with all amenities its flat here so great for cycling, there is a large open air swimming pool in the village open July and August a covered pool 20 mins away open all year round. We are halfway between the two large towns of Niort and Poitiers. We are English but speak fluent french and would be happy to give lessons in either English or French.
