About Us


Us at La Terrasse in the Beaujolais

We are Ruth and Joe Cook.

Ruth – hello, I was born and brought up in Jersey, Channel Islands and moved to England to train as a primary school teacher. After years of teaching on supply and permanent contract I also trained as an Anglican minister. I have always loved France and starting with our honeymoon in 1983, we have holidayed in various areas. I’m delighted to be living in Burgundy, a region that offers so much. I am also thrilled that we were able to buy our home so near to Taizé where I find refreshment and strength.

Joe – hello, I was born in Prescot then in Lancashire and after several jobs, mainly in IT, I too trained as a teacher working in secondary schools and latterly in an FE college. My interests include walking alone or with the Les Randonneurs Clunysois (the local ramblers). I also enjoy watching our local wildlife and of course eating the local food and drinking the local wine. Like Ruth, I love this beautiful part of France and am delighted to be living here. I’d be happy to introduce you to the many walks available in the area, to some of the local historic buildings and settlements and to some of the local artisans.

As a family, we have a daughter, Hannah, still in England.
