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.......
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!

So we spend our third night in the flat, thankfully the bed is comfortable and pubs with food are within walking distance!

Our solicitors have exchanged contracts today! So all on schedule to move out next week, just before completion. The removal company are confirmed and we're mostly packed and ready to go. Some good news from the Notaire in Duras would be the icing on the cake. We're still waiting........

We don't seem to be anywhere nearer to actually moving to France - still no news from the Notaire about the next set of documents that need to be signed by the seller. Has he or hasn't he?
