Hi, I retired to southern France with my husband, Barry, in 2016. We live a relaxing life, surrounded by beautiful scenery and nature, in Cathar country. After renovating first our home, then our gîte, we are ready to share it with like minded people. Between us, we love art, music, dance, reading, DIY, yoga and pilates, walking in nature, motorbike riding, and chatting to anyone about anything!
