We are Peter and Ellenore, retired professionals with 6 children and 21 grandchildren (who don't travel with us. Phew!) Our farm, "Mille Coteaux" is our retirement folly - all the comforts of our Sydney harbour-front home, adapted for easy country living with freezers, bread makers, ice-cream maker and espresso machine etc. but with just enough farming to keep us fit. We've done a lot of travel round the world and are great Francophiles. Want to spend more time in France, experience more of everyday local life and improve our language skills. We want to travel in Spring or Autumn, away from the holiday crowds, preferably between April and November 2014.
