After living many years in Norway and then the UK, we decided to check out of the rat race and buy a little cottage in France. We are now 'living the good life' here in rural France during the hot season and enjoying restoring our old stone cottages in a medieval village not far from the famous Conques.
We have a lot of land and use 'ouessant' sheep to help be our lawn-mowers. We also have chickens and ducks which add to the fun of living in the country. We are often busy in the kitchen garden which is usually full of tasty salad stuff and vegetables to eat and in the autumn we harvest several hundred kilos of walnuts from our many walnut trees.
We enjoy meeting new people and hearing their stories.
