Gail, La Rochebeaucous, France
We live outside the village of La Rochebeaucous, Dordogne where it's peaceful, no crime and wonderful French people. We moved here in November 2002 due to the Labour government's proposed rise in council taxes which meant that we couldn’t afford to remain in our beautiful house in Snape, Suffolk and retire there. We only looked at France because a few friends had moved here and we couldn't find anything that we liked in East Anglia. We've a beautiful property and lots of French friends who involve us in all local family events, and local restaurants serve food made from fresh ingredients.
