Well the deed in done. We are now the proud (crazy, foolish, impetuous!) owners of a little bit of France that they laughingly call habitable. We have bought property consisting on one "habitable" house, a barn and a ruin! on an acre of land just north of Magnac Laval in Limousin. The adventure all began back in January when my husband jokingly sent me a link to a wonderful looking chateau somewhere near Clermont Ferand (?) and before you know it we were off surfing around the property agents websites looking at all sorts.
Having visited the Limousin a few years ago when France experienced an incredibly hot summer, we already knew we loved the area, reminiscent of the England back in the 50's - no traffic, rolling countryside, friendly easy going people and ....peace and quiet - no noise pollution, living here in the suburbs of Toronto that is just unheard of (excuse the pun!). So it was decided, we would go to France for our summer vacation and buy somewhere! And that is what we have done. As this is my first ever blog I am hoping there will be a picture along with this - fingers crossed.
