About Wisdom Gites - Richard and Carol Wisdom

Our names are Richard and Carol Wisdom, I am now 50 years young and Carol will have to tell you herself as I dare not risk it! We have been happily married now since 24th May 1986 “CRIKEY!” that’s 31 years this year! And I don’t regret a single moment. We have two huge dogs Max the German Shepherd and Ted the Leonberger cross who both weigh about 50Kgs each but are really big softies although Max will yack on and on a bit. We live in a beautiful property called La Vergne, the house was built in 1906 and sits in 15 acres of land with an acre lake, we have only one neighbour and they keep to themselves, so it is a peaceful heaven. We moved here with Carol’s Mother Beatrice, who is on crutches and therefore somewhat dependent upon us, we have built her an annex connected to the house which is basically a one bedroom bungalow. I do possess a warped sense of humour, so be warned! We have no children, although Carol does say I am like a big kid sometimes! We enjoy an idyllic life here in France, “We really are living the dream”. You must take us as you find us, we have no heirs and graces (wouldn’t know where to find them anyway) A spade is a spade (unless its a shovel) I tinker, make stuff, break stuff, build things, destroy things and generally act like a big kid. Carol makes things, bakes lovely grub(as you can see from my minor weight problem), puts up with me, tends to our flock, grows all the veggies and flowers, continues to put up with me!, keeps house, and so much more.......

Although not quite a spur of the moment decision it was certainly a huge change when we decided to up sticks and move to France lock, stock and barrel.

Why Wisdom Gites - Richard and Carol Wisdom chose Adriers

When we first laid eye on La Vergne, it was love at first sight, a beautiful location within the rolling Vienne countryside with ample space and bucket loads of potential, it ticked every box we had. We still continue to pinch ourselves that we could be so lucky to own this beautiful piece of France. It is Idyllic and so tranquil that stress just melts away and all worries seem as nothing.

What makes this cottage unique

I think that when we first looked from the house out over the land and down across our lake it was a defining moment in our lives, we felt we had come home, even though we had never been here before.
