Cliff and Jill, We are a semi retired couple who have come to Brittany for the peace and tranquillity which we have found in abundance. We took the plunge in 2018 to leave Northampton's busy roads and the notorious M1 behind us and its the best decision we have ever made. There is no traffic here! Cliff an ex company director and Jill a retired State Registered Nurse are now turning our hands to intense DIY, modernising our main house and managing the gite for our guests from the uk and afar.
