My wife and I moved to this part of France because it is largely unspoilt countryside. This part of France, Lot et Garonne is the food basket of France providing fruit, vegetables and of course plums and prunes. We have 2 medium sized dogs which we got from the local rescue centre when they were puppies. All our guests have enjoyed the dogs company and many children have written that they really miss the dogs when they get home. We enjoy the peace and quiet and space that we have, our garden is over 1 hectare. The challenge for us is to tame and control the garden, not easy with weeds that seem to grow overnight! The local French population are very friendly to us and our visitors welcoming you to their country.
