We bought a holiday studio in 1988 in the are (sept. 66) and in 2000 we retired here we felt so much at home. We bought a house with a jungle of a 'garden' as my husband's project was (and remains) to create a garden. We moved from Portsmouth. Over the years, I was elected to the council, as we are totally accepted as village members. I will be retiring in March because of Brexit but also because 81 is too old to continue for another 6 years. I speak fluent French and this is my home.
