As you will probably have realised we are francophiles and are currently renovating our old fermette in the Limousin. Anne has described our experience in her three books, A Bull by the Back Door, The Duck with a Dirty Laugh and The Bells of St Paradis. During our association with France and the French we have picked up information, contacts and experiences which you might perhaps find of value.
