We’re Eleanor and Tom Bannigan! We are expats from Ireland and we’ve been living in France since 2005. Before we decided to take the plunge, we travelled to different regions on family holidays, but fell in love with the Vendée countryside, its culture and its people. Eventually finding our little piece of paradise, La Baudonnière has become our home and that of our six children! Ben and Laura have since returned to the Emerald Isle; Paddy lives in Spain; and living with us are our boys Thomas (12), Mikey (11), and Joe (7), who have a cuddly Bernese mountain dog named Jay, currently in his terrible twos!
