About the Host, Hanne & Jean-Francois
We are a Danish/French couple who, after 30 years in Denmark, have chosen to settle in the South of France. Before that, we travelled a great deal and lived in a.o. Marocco, England, France, Kenya, Comore Islands (in the Indian Ocean) - and crossed Africa from East to West in a 2CV.
Now retired we have decided to settle down quietly in the village St. Chinian in Lanquedoc, but so many interesting things to do and see that 'quiet' rarely arises: walking in beautiful landscapes, tennis, choir, painting, cultural associations etc.
We also travel a little, preferabely to Spain and Italy and dream of a trip to St. Petersburg. We like good food and wine and love opera, which is scarce around here ...
