One thing leads to another. I met Ching and Gary years ago through blogging. They would say each time they visited, "When we retire we are moving to France, and you will help us find a house." I sold Ching items from my brocante, now those things are coming home.
One of the best things about looking for a house is that you get to go inside and look at the house! Century old houses makes it even more interesting.
Gary and Ching wanted to live in an old village house, which are called Maison de Village, these type of houses are usually on three to four floors, ours is on three floors. We looked at a few... they found one that caught their heart in Lourmarin. I wish I had found it first, I love it, but I do not need another house
Ching has asked me to help her set up and design the interior, oh twist my arm, pinch me, but do not tell me this is a dream.
The other best thing about house hunting in France is going to the villages and exploring.
How easy to get 10000 steps in without counting.
Ansouis was one of them, the house we visited was in the shadow of the castle.
Dang isn't that just terrible.
How many painted shutters do I need to see before I turn a blind eye? Countless.
Are you looking for a house in France? If not let's pretend!
No, I am not kidding.
Yes I am.
No I am not.
Are you? Just say yes.
If their offer is accepted then they have found their nest.
More to come.
