Life in France

   Fontvieille near La Souteraine

This is the quiet hamlet of Fontvieille where we found the French Farmhouse of our dreams.


Although there were nine houses in the hamlet, only four were occupied full time.  The remainder were holiday homes for French families who lived in towns elsewhere in France.  The principle residents of the hamlet were Monsieur and Madame Tonchon and their son Jean Luc.  The family were held in very high esteem locally. Jean Luc was the president of the local hunting fraternity and his brother was president of the local fishing association.
