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!

Moving Day

Yesterday we waved goodbye to our belongings, superbly loaded (we hope!) at top speed and efficiency by James and Mike from Hunts International, fuelled only by frequent tea breaks. It’s all going to be stored until we’re ready to have it delivered to France – hopefully soon, although no firm date yet.

The house is now clean and empty of everything except happy memories. Thank you to all our children, family and friends who helped to make all those memories.
So we spend our third night in the flat, thankfully the bed is comfortable and pubs with food are within walking distance!
This morning we are expecting the engineer from BT to fit us a new phone line, the first step on the way to broadband. Until then, we are having to manage with sharing ONE mobile internet dongle, for as long as two weeks. Potentially more difficult than sharing a small flat!
