Those of you who were reading here in the summer of 2014 might remember that we came back from France with a bigger-than-usual souvenir, a house! No, it’s not one of those “we fell in love with it and bought it on the spot” stories – I challenge anyone to purchase a house spontaneously in France, in fact. It’s a tale that lasts months, nay, years, starting back in 2013 when we first started talking seriously about maybe buying a little piece of France that we could enjoy in our retirement. Of course, we can’t simply afford to own two houses outright so the French house would need to become a holiday rental… and thus began the search – because as they say, location is everything…
That day in Nérac was life-changing in a few ways – it changed the way I take photographs as well as my attitude to making pastry from scratch (yes, I can!).
Can’t you imagine enjoying a meal or an apéro right here?
Yes, that’s right, we’re thrilled to launch our vacation rental website for our little maison de la fontaine!
“Maison de la fontaine is a fully-furnished, newly-renovated vacation home featuring all modern conveniences, sleeping up to 7 people. Located in the historic town of Nérac, in Gascony, South West France, the house is easily reached from Bordeaux or Toulouse via train and is just a short drive to San Sebastian in Spain. It’s the perfect base from which to explore the surrounding wine regions and a great “home base” if you’re checking out Euro 2016!”
