  • Descrição


    English/ Dutch couple in the french country side. Animal loving household, 2 dogs, 6 cats, 2 retired horses and 3 retired sheep. Quiet nights without city noise. Big old french house with a pool and hot tub in the summer months.
    We are Graeme and Paula, 56 and 47 years old, we are running a tube amplifier company from our place in rural France. We often find there are not enough hours in the day to get done what we need/ want to do and would therefor love some help, so there is more time for some fun things as well.
    To stay healthy we run and cycle in the area, neither to excess but more to serve the purpose of staying fit and healthy. Besides that we take our dogs for walks at the end of the day, to wind down after working.
    Our house is a typical old house in the french charentaise style, it is well over 300 years old and always needs something doing to it. Besides that we are trying to get more environmentally friendly and have in the last few years added solar panels on the roof of our house. But we would like to extend this to other areas in the future.
    We do however have a pool in our garden, which seems a necessity in the summer as it can get hot here.
    We have a pinball in our kitchen and have a go at that whenever the mood strikes.
    We both love travelling, see new places, try different food etc.
