We have lived and worked in France for over 10 years This is our website about our lives, our work and our animals. This picture is of our house taken on the day that we viewed it and decided to take the plunge and move to the Haute Vienne, Limousin in France.


We chose the Monts de Blond in the Haute Vienne (dept 87) because it is an outstandingly beautiful area.  We are close to Limoges, Bellac and St Junien, and only 20 minutes away from Limoges International Airport and the A20 auto route.

We have fully renovated our own house, putting in new floors, new staircases, re-plumbing the entire house, creating a stunning kitchen and a fully usable cellar. 

The patio outside the house was built by Ian and gives a wonderful seating area to watch the world go by.  Ian also constructed a super deck area by the above ground pool – perfect for those lazy summer days.

The garden consists of beautiful flowerbeds by the house, filled with honeysuckle and jasmine for heady summer scents, and masses of cottage garden plants. 

There is a vegetable plot that keeps us supplied with fresh vegetables and soft fruits (providing we can keep the chickens away from the blackcurrants!)  There is an apple orchard and some cherry trees that fruit extremely well.
