Default France or Bust

Hi
Well, I've got to 65 and TLR is coming up 60.

For years (I really mean decades) we have holiday'd in France and have now decided to sell up our self sufficient organic Smallholding in Sunny Devon and toddle off to the Dordogne.

Despite our really healthy lifestyle here the onslaught of arthritis, joint replacements (plural) and both of having suffered cancer some years back, means there are only so many sacks of animal feed, bales of hay and straw, bags of compost we can lift.

Time for longer summers nod shorter winters.

Hi, and welcome to the forum!
Come over to the dedicated France forum (sub-section of Europe below) and post again there. Welcome Inn is a world-wide introduction section and your thread will get swallowed up by the following ones...
The first thing which springs to mind is the proximity of medical care, so don't choose a location too far from doctors/pharmacies/hospitals. I presume that one of you is receiving the UK State Pension, otherwise you'd have to provide for private healthcare insurance, at least at the beginning. Also, don't imagine that the winters are shorter! I live further south and our winters are cold/wet/snowy...!
