Nicole’s former job as financial director of a medico-social association drew her away from the hamlet of La Herbechère where she grew up and where several generations of her family had lived. The bond with home, however, was very strong and has never been broken. She made her grandparents’ farm her country house and it is today the main residence of the family.
Her parents’ home is now her daughter’s home: “I’ve passed on my love of this place to her. She’s learning all there is to know about the gîte and says she hopes to run it one day.”
