From Kate and Martin, France

01 January 2020

Kate and Martin, Somme, France

1) Disillusioned with work and pensions and future outlook of being unable to pay off mortgage and retire, so France offered a solution. 2) Moved to the Somme in Picardy October 2005. 3) Successful B&B and Battlefield tour business with no mortgage!! P.s. Now retired to Limousin after 11 years in North. Confolens festival is well attended with acts from all over the world.

Good luck,

Kate and Martin
