I am a retired medical doctor and my wife Kate, nurse from the UK. Now I have moved into the life of a semi-professional artist, specialising in oil painting and figurine sculpting. Our home in Port Vendres is brightened by many of my paintings on the walls. We love walking the hills and coastline of this magnificent countryside.
Please contact us in case you have any questions or need more information on the property.
English is my native language but can get by in French, if spoken slowly. I can read written French with relative ease.
