Since leaving our previous employment in 2017 and setting up Villa Duroux, Richard and Aleksandra have been busy on several fronts: the major renovations to Villa Duroux have been completed; the girls are now well established and loving French life, they are completely bi-lingual; and as a family we have have successfully integrated into the French system.  

Aleksandra has re-qualified as a Personal Fitness Coach and is now running local fitness classes and personal training sessions along with further developing herself in terms of triathlon and marathon racing combined with cold water swimming throughout the whole year. 

Richard has returned to sports after a gap of almost 10 years and has dusted off his golf clubs and padel tennis racquet. He will be only too pleased to stop gardening whenever there is an available partner to play sports with. He has also taken his first steps in giving back to the community by becoming president of the Comité des Fêtes for the local village of Montagrier.
