About the Host, James
I am interested in architecture and old buildings, anything and everything interests me consequently am an expert at none.
My current house is an ongoing project the main part of which has been restored, as always with old houses there is always more to do.
Living in France is an ideal, with excellent food and wine to be enjoyed in the region with the benefit of good weather. We enjoy a picnic and swimming at one of the many swimming lakes in the area particularly in the warm summer evenings. The walking in the area is excellent
