About the Host, Jane
Michael & I are a retired Australian couple who enjoy renovating our fabulous home in rural South West France. We love wandering at leisure through the vineyards and forests with our dog Charlie. Our favourite occupation is entertaining friends on our sunny terrace with a glass or two of wonderful local wine. In the Winter we bunker down in front of the fire with a good book or good company but always with a glass of wine. We try to get back to Australia once a year to visit family but otherwise prefer to stay home and enjoy the charm of the local villages and markets. We love meeting people and look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our home should you choose to visit.
