I moved to France in 2001. My reasons: for my children to learn a second language and to grow up in the countryside as I had done. It nearly worked. My kids grew up living with the freedoms of country life, but have virtually lost their mother tongue!!! I am a gardener and worked at Chateau Capion for 8 years. I have recently started a new job in the Loire.
