We moved to France in 2002, from the South of England. Sarah had a background working with animals, especially horses, Tim had his own groundworks company. We met only 18 months before moving here, we decided to take the plunge, neither of us speaking french! We have learnt as we've gone along, taught by our neighbours, with many laughs at our expense. We have learnt enough french to run our own carpentry business in the area, doing traditional oak work. We were married in our village in 2005.
|Year property purchased||2002|
|Why this location?||We are country people and when we found Les Trois Maisons,with its fantastic view and large farmhouse kitchen we knew that it was for us - we loved the idea of renovating 3 ruins and a very smelly house! It was a long hard slog over 5 years, doing all the work ourselves, but now as all our guests tell us, it is a wonderful property in a beautiful situation. We have been adopted by our local agricultural community, which we participate in and gives us a very enjoyable lifestyle.|
|Unique benefits of property||We enjoy the fine weather of SW France and the agricultural ambiance, we ride our horses and walk our dogs regularly through the country lanes and woods, where we gather mushrooms and chestnuts in good french style. Although we are rural, the small local village is convenient, with all facilities, it can be reached on foot, by bicycle, by horse and occasionally by car if you must!|
