I am an accountant working in France, my loves in life are being with family & friends, walking, swimming, yoga, keeping healthy, gardening & making things like cakes & clothes.
My hobbies have to be rotated as I just don't have time to fit them all in to working life but that's good because I'm never, ever bored!
Graham & I bought Maison Lajus, SW France in April 2006 after four years searching for place in the country. We fell in love instantly & fortunately everyone who visits feels the same.
Our search criteria was:
Rolling countryside & wonderful views like the Yorkshire Dales.
Four "proper seasons" cold clear winter, early spring, sunny summer & pretty colours in autumn.
More days of sunshine per annum than UK
A living community, not a tourist destination
Access to water, lakes or sea
Easy transport routes from the UK & other EU countries
We found it at Maison Lajus and have enjoyed every minute of our time there! I am enjoying our new life in France, there is always plenty to do and new places to explore.
