After long careers in the IT industry in the UK, we were looking for a new adventure and we certainly found one. The two of us and our lovely pooch upped sticks and moved to France. We spent 3 years developing Papillon, the gîte garden area and then Libellule. We have learnt some great new skills and met a lot of really interesting people on the way. It is so lovely to meet new guests and hear their stories and also to catch up with returning guests each summer. Our next challenge is to spruce up our own house and garden and then maybe we might relax in the French sunshine!
