Retirement Villages
La Différence

Is it a change of lifestyle, a concept, what you want to call it, La DIFFERENCE is quite simply the answer to all our dreams!

During our working lives, we have all thought about retirement, taking it easy, enjoying life, making the most of every day, with no hassle or stress - La Difference is the solution.

Combined with the atmosphere of a Country Club, La DIFFERENCE offers facilities and services you would expect in a 3* hotel.  As the years go by, we often have less courage to do the housework, the ironing, mow the lawn, paint the front door, etc, etc. All these chores can be done for you, while you relax by the pool, enjoy cycling or walking by the river, have a coffee or glass of wine with friends in the bar?

La DIFFERENCE is totally committed to reducing energy consumption and our range of bungalows have been specifically designed for easy living and less outgoings.

The villages offer security, tranquility with as much or as little help as you may need.

For ex-pats living in France, retirement is often a worry; the large country house is too much work, having to take the car to buy the bread, and the worry of leaving the house empty when you travel to see the children.

La DIFFERENCE is the solution.

In our modern world, everything is compact; telephones, cars and now houses.
