We are retired and live in Santa Barbara, California, where Owen's family has lived for over 100 years. We adore France and go as often as we can. Even our grandkids are unabashed Francophiles after spending several summers with us. Our apartment is our second home, so we treat it lovingly and expect our guests to do the same. We enjoy helping guests plan their trip if they ask, and Laurie has many tricks for saving money and time that she gladly shares.
