We have both lived and worked in Portugal, Spain and the UK and decided to come to France about 20 years ago. My wife is from this village and her family are still here. Having purchased a large property we had to decide what to do with it so we decided to build holiday homes here. We also are foster carers and looking after 3 boys, they all have been with us since they were babies one is now eighteen and are really just part of our large family.
