Margaret and Patrick have lived in France since 2001 but have had their property here since 1985. They are now retired after 25 years in Hong Kong.
“We are both very integrated into the local community with Margaret being a member of a local French choir and I am one of several volunteers for our nearby cinema that shows English films every week. I help with the selection of the films and act as cashier several times a month selling tickets. Ours is one of only 2 cinemas in France run wholly by volunteers and we have recently been modernized to show 3D films. We are also members of the organizing committee of out local village Social and Cultural Association, which keeps us very involved in Village life. We are surrounded by beautiful countryside and virtually all our neighbours are farmers. It is delightfully peaceful but with close proximity to great shops and restaurants. We keep telling ourselves that we have found a corner of paradise and so are grateful for our good fortune.”
