The Phoenix has risen

Here we are at the turn of the year, looking forward to 2017, as we will finally achieve the goal which we set ourselves in 2009.

The house is now habitable, we have a functioning bathroom and one to finish off.  Next step will be to start on the barn.

Annie, has offered Simon a part time job of gardener at the Chateau, it will be so good for him, as he will be able to get away from the house for a couple of days a week.  A reverse working week.

Below are some pictures to show the progress since our last blog.

We are very excited and know that this isn't the end of the journey, but another beginning, as we now have to
make our life in France, and start a business.

Below is a link to our website, where we hope to achieve bookings for our Chambre d'Hote and Gite.  We hope that you find it easy to use and that we will see you very soon in France :-)

About us

My photo
Simon works for Sainsbury's as a Department Manager has a multi-million pound turn over annually on his department and works all hours God sends. I am Events Monkey. I call myself that, as my actual title is unknown!! Just responsible for any event, function, conference, meeting etc.,etc., that happens on the campus where I work. I'd be better being called an Events Elephant, as I'm paid peanuts and expected to work all hours known to man. This is the tale of how we decided to take the massive step to living a totally different life. Selling our home in England and moving to a fantastic little village in the Auvergne, including some of our adventures along the way.
