When / why did you all move to France?2 Replies
Fed up of jobs, quit Manchester in 2004 (33 & 39) to buy a house outright with a view to doing chambres d'hotes.After a few house hunts around Carcassonne and Jonzac we bought in Deux Sevres, then moved to Vendee and Dordogne along the way doing gites not CdH as planned. We were moving back to UK in 2005 after discovering how cold rural French farmhouses were but held out until 09.Back to UK (Cornwall) in 09, sold place in Dordogne in 2011, house hunting in France from 2013 eventually bought again in 2018. This time as Cornwall had been much milder than inland south we decided to see what was available on the coast of Brittany and got one in a coastal village on the Crozon Peninsula, friendliest people we have known in France so far. We sold our then house in Devon (after 4 moves) and bought a small place back in Cornwall and one in Finistere.Other half has recently mentioned Portugal!! It isn't happening. Quite happy where we are...... at the moment.
