We are Nigel and Janice John and we took early retirement and moved to France in June 2008.
After busy professional lives in the London area we love the peace and tranquillity of La Tremoulie. We chose the area for its rural location, yet easy access to lively market towns, international airports and motorway network to channel ports.
The locals have been friendly and welcoming and we’ve made many new friends within the community.
After much work on the gîte and garden, it was ‘test driven’ by family and friends throughout the summer and autumn of 2008 and in May 2009 we welcomed our first paying guests! We were delighted that from our eight paid bookings that first year, three re-booked for 2010.
The trend has continued with many couples and families returning again and again. We always look forward to seeing our new friends again and to welcoming some new faces!
