When did it all start? Can I pin point my conscience decision to purchase a holiday home in France? No; I don’t think there was a defining moment, rather, a slow building of an idea which gained momentum with each book and TV reality show that showcased others relocating to France. Even travel and French property magazines aided visualisation of myself and my family in France. Recipe books featuring French cuisine fuelled my desire to experience the rich culinary delights of this country famous for its cuisine.
I have always loved the beauty and serenity of French gardens, the stylish interiors of grand maisons and the seemingly effortless style of men and women’s dress. This however, I admired from a distance because I had never even stepped foot on French soil at that stage.
