Tony & I came to France in 2003 to fulfill a dream; to convert a barn. We found exactly what we wanted in a lovely area here in Treignac and spent the next 2 year working daily. We eventually achieved a beautiful home and two gites. The next 7 years were spent building up the gites and B&B business and we thoroughly enjoyed meeting a variety of people from all walks of life and different nationalities. By this time we were both pensioners and, totally out of character, decided to be sensible and down size. Tonys’ other ambition was to build and live in a wooden house so we set about finding some land. Treignac was our first choice and fortunately there were several plots on the market. We came to Le Poncheral to view land and landed up buying the wooden house next door!! No more stress, a quiet tranquil life but so boring! We missed meeting people and so Woodlands Cottage was created. This was the start of another adventure so read and see “The big build”
Many have commented that we should write a book about all our experiences and adventures, but its much better to come and hear for yourselves!!
We look forward to seeing you.

Ann & Tony
