There is an abundance of wild life in the area, the area is known for its bears, although you are unlikely to see one. You may however see the wild stags or deers. October is the rutting season and an amazing experience! Wild boar are also very close, you may see on your walks where they have turned the ground over. There are wild cats, foxes, Eagles, red kites, snakes and many other animals and birds. We provide binoculars so you can sit and watch!

Hi we are Kim and Mike. We have had a holiday home here for the last 9 years. We very much enjoy the peace and tranquility of the area. Taking in the magnificent scenery.
We have two cockapoo dogs, which we totally adore. We also keep chickens, our neighbours love the fresh eggs.
We both speak a little french, but not fluently as of yet. We are still practicing. This does not cause us too many problems as we have some very good french friends.
