South West of France
La Giraudiere is not just a website it was once a masters house or maison d’maitre in a small village in the South West of France. The property fell into dis-repair after being neglected for 50 years or more. Now it is being restored and converted into a small hamlet, a place of learning, a place of culture exchange, a place being brought back to life and at the same time adding to the lives of those who arrive and help make it happen.
The Property is being restored and reinstated along with it’s website by those that stay here. People from all walks of life who have a passion for France and or the French way of life are arriving from around the globe to contribute towards the project. Students, pensioners, professionals have all contributed.
