    We are Jim and Cherry, both retired but still very active. Last year ran La Rochelle Marathon in under 4 hours.Love to go walking with our dogs, and consider ourselves very laid back and enjoy the lovely weather here in Vendee in summer. Very peaceful and quiet here, we open our garden once a year for charity and everyone comments on how we have a bit of paradise here.

    We retired to France from England 6 yearsago with our cat and 6 racing siberian huskies. We now have 4 cats, two remaining huskies, a border terrier, 3 hens and a wild mallard duck. I was a Landscape Manager (Disney land Paris was one project) and my partner of 36 years was a Landscape designer(She won silver medals at two Hampton court shows) We have a beautiful garden, with a 36 metre square fish pond. The country side here is idyllic. So not only will you help reroof an old house, you'll benefit from years of landscaping knowledge, and how to run and train huskies!!! I am also a published author "Sled Dog Gun..Aviemore Dreaming" Amazon.
