Other things to note
We are from New Zealand (Nouvelle-Zelande) down under, and English is our first language. We are slowly learning French, but sadly not very well at present. We absolutely love Confolens, and France in general; its culture, its ancient towns, its food et wine, and the way of life here.
I'm happy to share my experiences with you.
