I am 62 years old, and today I am retired.
I am living with my wife all year long in the Valley of Chevreuse, 40 km away from Paris.
I have been for the past 20 years Sales Manager for various IT american companies in France.
The Domain La Cabane is my little paradise where I come with my family very often, out the high season.
I rent my house both to balance my budget and to be able to improve the comfort of La Cabane every year.
La Cabane is a very quiet and peaceful place, with no house around, but very close to the Atlantic Ocean,
When you are on one of the two the terraces, you hear the noise of the waves, especially when the tide is high. It is absolutely magic because you are completely some where else at this moment.
