my wife and I are planning to retire and move to the Charente area in a few months time. During the past 30 years or so we’ve lived and worked in numerous places around the world - most notably a 5 year stint in Brussels.
We’ve seen a house that we really like in Roumazières-Loubert. I wondered whether anyone in the group has lived there or close by and has any comments / advice about settling in that particular town.
I enjoy carpentry and had the idea of using my hobby / interest on a small scale basis to make garden furniture. Any thoughts as to whether this would be feasible?
One of my other interests is music - particularly blues and rock. We know that there are quite a few bars in the area that have live music events. I used to play the guitar and will be taking it up again. Does anyone know of a guitar tutor in the area?
We’re planning to (eventually) get an Irish Wolfhound and possibly a Great Dane as well, so would be really interested to hear from any members who have either of these two breeds.
Look forward to participating in the group.
Nigel & Mila
