Living Your Dream In The French Countryside
When our youngest daughter, Charlotte, was 4 she announced to us that she was going to live in France when she was big. She is now 23 and has achieved her final goal. She now lives in the French countryside just outside Paris and walks out of her house to this view each day.
The Mayor's office is right opposite which is very handy, added to the fact that he is her landlord.
An osteopath's office around the corner makes you want to be in need of some treatment.
Ivy clad houses seem to be the norm around here and they always have the biggest log stores ever.
This gorgeous ancient building is along the road and is for sale - tempting!
The village well
and beautifully tended gardens that make you want to walk right in.
Vegetables and flowers are grown all over the village
in fenced off areas and each and every one is immaculate.
That's Charlotte's house through the trees with the white shutters. It's a wonderful feeling when you see your child's dreams come true.
Later today I will be photographing the makeover of Charlotte's house to show you and tomorrow we start to head back to our dream back in England.
