Welcome to the Quebec Eastern Townships, a land known for its beatiful landscapes, reknowned wine road, culture and numerous artists, and almost as many horses
ENGLISH VERSION follows after the French version below.
Gilberte est enseignante et très bientôt retraitée, elle s'adonne également à la poterie; Christian est déjà retraité du monde de l'informatique mais a embrassé une seconde carrière d'artiste, d'écrivain et de traducteur en attendant le jour de la retraite de Gilberte, pour embrasser d'autres projets, à l'étranger ceux-là.
Nous apprécions énormément la vie et le calme de la campagne. Nous sommes amoureux des arts et de la musique. Nous sommes des gens très soigneux, notre environnement en témoigne, et nous recherchons ce même trait de caractère des personnes à qui nous confions notre beau domaine. Le respect et un niveau élevé de conscience sous toutes ses formes.
Gilberte, 59, is a teacher who will retire from a 33-year teaching career in January 2008; she also does pottery and ceramics. Christian, 51, has already retired in 2002; He had founded a computer business in 1980, which he sold to one of the Big Four in 1999; since then, he embraced a second career that always been a passion for him: writing and translating, which he does from home, while waiting for his spouse to reach her own retirement. Then, other projects are on the way, which involve voluntary work oversea, to keep them young at heart.
We appreciate a lot the countrystyle living, and peace it offers, knowing that if we feel for stir and buzz, Montreal is only one-hour away. We are lovers of arts and music. In fact, we even have opened our own art gallery right on the property but this was more for our own pleasure than for commercial activities. We feel very much privilegiate to be the owners of an art gallery for our eyes only. We are extremely careful people, our environment witnesses this quality of ours, and we want to swap home with people that are concerned with the same level of respect of each others belongings. Our domain is unique and we wish to exchange it with also unique people.
We have two grown up daughters, who have their own life in Montreal.
We are attracted by quiet places, the architectures and the old stones
