Not too long to wait.

Not sure if you will have given up on me,
 as Mr France and I have been missing for almost a year,
 only popping in now again.

I'm pleased to say our house hunting has come to an end.
 After driving many thousands of km. we  have finally found our dream house
 in the South west of France, just over a 100 km from where we used to live. 
The terrain is very different, much more open space,

which varies from agricultural to wine growing.

This impressive building is the  Hotel de Ville /Town Hall.
The stone houses in this region are cream in colour,
 very different to the earthy coloured stone  where we used to live.


We have already eaten several times in this very popular small town.
There are lots of restaurants to choose from & plenty of artisan boutiques.
Already the tourists our buying their summer hats.


I'm sure it will become our favourite  place.

This is the river that passes through our village.

We now have  only 6 more weeks to wait until its ours.
However the previous owners are leaving soon to return back to the UK.
so we have been able to arrange for us to rent it before we sign with the Notaire.

I'll be able to let you see some pictures of new house when it belongs to us.
We'll be very busy these next few weeks preparing for our move.
 So until then 
à bientôt
