Retired and married to a Chef, I am a family historian and author who loves entertaining, dining out, travel, books, movies, live theatre and genealogy. Our children are all overseas, so we converted our house into two residences. When planning we thought of all the things we want when we travel and have included them in the retreat. We're here with advice if you want it and, If you have ever thought of living in this wonderful place, we would be happy to introduce you to like minded people, otherwise we will leave you on your own.
