My partner and I would like to move away from busy south east England to somwhere quiet now we are retired. Brittany seems a good possibility - reasonable property prices so we can release equity, choice of quiet locations but near facilities, GP etc.
We think we are quite clued up on some of the pros and cons such as brushing up our French, the acres of beaurocracy, getting stuck somewhere we don't like, xenophobia, the delights of a fosse septique etc.
Any advice about the areas to look at would be most welcome. We are visiting in a few weeks. Plan B is to move to the Welsh borders - but there again similar cons spring to mind (xenophobia, fosse septique!! only joking!)
