My husband and I had the opportunity of taking time out of life..a year to be exact…to look after a property in the heart of the French countryside of Brittany. As a freelance artist, it was quite an easy and exciting prospect. This is the diary of what led us here and how we got on…without knowing too much of the language. From country mud to village markets…our pathway to France will prove to be a little daunting but never dull and always beautiful journey.
After a year, we were offered a job as Estate Manager, House Manager and Chefs in a Chateau in Normandy that is rented out to Tourists during the Summer. We decided to take it and stay in France permanently.
I’d love you to join us in the mad-hatter journey, discovering a new world, learning a new language and settling in to a totally different way of life – From Cape Town to Normandy….
I’d love to hear your thoughts as well.
