Paul and Suzanne Martin live a comfortable life in East Yorkshire on the proceeds of Paul’s garage and car sales business, until everything goes horribly wrong due to mismanagement, and the business goes bankrupt. Suzanne cannot cope with the loss of income, house and status and enters into a deep depression. Their adult children, Sean and Lorraine, try to find a solution and eventually the suggestion is made that they start a new life in France as resident caretakers at a large villa in Cannes. Follow their experiences during the first year, as they adapt to the demands of their rich employers, to living on a low wage and with very little status, and discover the pitfalls of living and working in a foreign country, with limited language skills – the highs and lows, the enjoyment and exasperation, the challenges and surprises. A rare insight into life behind the high walls and electric gates of Super-Cannes.
