Let’s start at the top!

Who is this little man on top of the roof?

So, there is so much to tell you about our new purchase, where to begin? Well, let’s start at the top and work down. Right on the top of the pigeonnier there is a delightful creature, but what exactly is it?


Here it comes, my first blog post, all about our brand new life in France in our brand new (well pretty old actually) French property. We’ve just bought a beautiful house here in the south of France and I am going to tell you all about the trials and tribulations of our permanent move over here. In particular I am going to tell you all about our French renovation of this lovely , old property. Thank goodness my lovely husband is a very experienced builder, our French renovation is in safe hands! French vintage at its best. Who knew we would end up renovating a house in France?
