Our new home in France

While looking for a house to rent, somewhere to base ourselves while we hunt for the right property, we found the perfect house in the perfect spot -and with the help of the lovely people at Cle Rouge Immobilier in Duras it is ours! This blog is primarily for our friends and family to follow the ups and downs of the adventures. However if we don't know you, I hope you'll enjoy the story too, and that one day you may consider booking into our lovely home as a paying guest - you'll be made very welcome!

House Sold!

We are another step closer to our dream! On Monday we completed on the sale of our Worcester house. Many thanks to Craig and Julian at Reeds Rains in Worcester, for their expert handling of our sale.
Someone is looking after us as the euro/sterling exchange rate is working in our favour and some of that money was winging its way to our French account by the end of the afternoon.
So we are now all set to sign on the dotted line for the French house.....sooner or later! We are still hoping that it will be in the second week of September. We are eager to get started on the next part of the project, the renovation of the barn, addition of en-suites, decorating and the establishment of the garden. Perhaps a bit of a breather first is a good idea.......


  1. Congratulations, hope everything continues in this orderly fashion for you. Going into rented in between moves seems like a really sensible idea too.

  2. Good luck in your new life - fab looking house and thanks for the plug. ps MFH is now on facebook - are you?
