Hello All and welcome to our profile. To start with - a bit about our background. We are a British couple now living in France. I worked in UK financial services for over 20 years and my husband Carl has been a freelance illustrator and graphic designer for the last 20 or so years.
We bought our house in Cruzy 12 years ago as our bolt hole in the sun. Back then it was in desperate need of some TLC but after some rearranging of the space and plenty of careful refurbishment we now have a lovely, cozy house, equipped for modern living but still full of character. We loved coming here so much that in 2007 we decided to up sticks from the UK and make the permanent move to France to fully embrace the French experience.
We both love the outdoor life, the countryside, the sun and the tranquillity that this area offers in spades. Carl in particular is a very keen cyclist and we couldn't be in a better location for stunning scenery and quiet roads, tailor made for those who prefer to be on 2 wheels.
To pay the bills we run a property management business looking after holiday homes and offering home improvement services. Carl also continues with his graphics work. Learning to speak French has been one of the biggest challenges but with the help of lessons and chatting with friends and neighbours over the years Sue's French is now passable, although unfortunately not yet fluent.
We are about to complete our second renovation project, also in Cruzy, and are therefore happy to offer for rent our "escape to the sun". So we are waiting to welcome you to our much loved home and share all there is to offer in this beautiful, unspoilt region in the sunny south of France.
