Well here I am, retired and living in France, always rather a dream but even better in reality. I liive in an unfashionable rural area in the west of France probably about an hour from the west coast. I’ve recently moved within France and after the lovely old mill I previously lived in which nestled in a river valley, I’m now on the top of a hill with great views of farmland. I live in a restored farmhouse with lots of useful outbuildings…. all nicely filling up!
i think of myself as a countrywoman having grown up on a farm, I love all things rural including the smells. I have dogs, cats, poultry and a horse, a gorgeous garden and a potager for my veg. What could be better?
