  • Description


    We are a married retired couple in our early 60's, we have a longiere and very large garden in a rural area of Berry in the Loire Valley. My husband is a retired teacher and I used to work for the NHS.
    The area we live in is not an area for someone looking for night life or for anyone wanting to meet other youngsters in large towns etc.
    We do have Tours airport 1 hour from us and Paris 2 hours, Amboise Poitier Bourge Blois are all close by which we visit and we are also on the edge of the Brenne which, is the National Park of France.
    My husband belongs to a motor cycle club and I go to the free art classes held here, there is also free french lessons, keep fit, cookery and sewing groups here.
    We can offer accommodation house is only two bedrooms, of which we have one . in exchange for some gardening work,and help in the house, painting woodwork etc
    They are welcome to come on our visits to other places and meet up with our friends and can use our bicycles to go off on their own as they want.
    If anyone is interested they must be aware this is a rural area surrounded by fields and forests so must like a quiet country environment, would hate anyone to come thinking anything else.
