Roger Whittaker: He left Ireland ten years ago
In 2013 he ended his long touring career. At 85 years old, Roger Whittaker is now enjoying his well-deserved pension, which he is spending in a small village in the south of France. Ten years ago he moved from Ireland to Saint-Cirq-Lapopie.
Roger Whittaker: His home is a real pearl
This place, which sounds complicated to German ears, is one of the most beautiful villages in France. The association “Les Plus Beaux Villages de France” (German: The most beautiful villages in France) has awarded the village of almost 200 souls with this special title. What makes the municipality near Toulouse such a paradise? The association describes Saint-Cirq-Lapopie as a masterpiece of the Middle Ages. Picturesque alleys, steep cliffs, the river Lot and the gabled houses shape the look of the place, which the French writer André Breton once made his summer residence. Roger Whittaker also has his home there. It remains to be seen whether he will have his last rest in this paradise – or whether he would like to look for a new place to stay again despite his old age?
