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!

More changes...

Changes over the last couple of weeks.....
                                   the plum trees peaked the weekend after the last post, and beautiful they were too...
The trees are now in leaf, with only the odd bit of blossom in places.
     Our pond is filling up, and not just with water.....
                                              we already have at least one resident!!

Nicole and I went to visit our next residents today....they started hatching at the weekend, a few more still to go.
Over the last week, we have seen swallows and heard a cuckoo, as well as an enormous frog chorus every night. The weather is changeable, cool and wet one day, and gloriously hot and sunny the next. The grass is growing at an amazing rate and the gite is coming on too. The bedrooms are plaster-boarded and the plasterer was here today starting the 'finishing'. More pictures to follow.
One more picture to finish, a view of the chateau through the wisteria growing on the balcony.
