Grahame and Jean Wood

Jean et Grahame Wood - Photo Ian JonesWe have lived happily in Chaniers since 2004. Originally British, we now have had dual nationality since February 2010. We have 4 children and 6 grandchildren who live in Britain and Spain

Our house is in a lovely setting; the neighbours are superb and very helpful. They encouraged us in the improvement of our house. Then we started work on the garden. It can look beautiful, but many plants have different ideas from us and sometimes they win the battle! In 2008 we started our little bed and breakfast business to which we have welcomed visitors from many different countries.
We have many and varied interests.

Music plays an important part in our lives. Although we are not instrumentalists, we are in local choirs and enjoy the range of works sung and have travelled to the UK for choral exchanges.

Jean swims daily in a local public pool.

Grahame Wood - the real Father Christmas!Grahame no longer plays sport but follows many with interest.

You can see he is also the real Father Christmas!

Jean has been studying family history since childhood and recently brought out a book about her extended Huguenot family.
She also studied art with textiles and this still features importantly in her life.

Family and friends are important too. Most of our travel is related to important family events. We are both members of AVF (Accueil des Villes Françaises - Welcome to French Towns) where we both learn French and Jean teaches English
