V@markrobbins that’s what I need to hear. Not averse to rain, just don’t want it to be the whole summer without respite - which is how it has come across reading a fair number of posts. Have discounted Dordogne on the reports of rain flooding fields and it staying there. Rain is good. Just don’t want to be sat in a permanent puddle afterwards. Neither do we want to live in a scorched landscape.
Dept 19 appeals to us for the varied landscape. I’m the girl who would carry an ordnance survey map and go hunting waterfalls in the Lake District or Yorkshire dales. Hubby is ex forces so would happily tromp beside me.
Don’t mind excess cold winters. I have several sets of thermals and tog rated boots which withstood -30 waving at the Russian checkpoint, on the arctic circle side of the fence, at midnight without hassle and he even waved back. I have my nordic walking sticks.
The possibility to engage in artisanal festivals is also a big draw as I will continue my business when we move.
No offence meant when I say we don’t want to move to an area which has become heavily populated with ex pats. Having expats around is fine and good, though we want to move to France to live the French lifestyle, otherwise we may as well stay here in Lincolnshire
The weather is not the dealbreaker. Lifestyle is .
