Friday Fun: Back to France

Who am I kidding? English country mansions are all very nice, but my heart beats faster when I see a French chateau – or even a ‘humble’ maison de maitre. And, who knows, maybe in the region Bourgogne -Franche-Comte, it might even be affordable? My ‘retirement’ plans are to acquire one of these and organise writing, reading and thinking retreats. Any takers?

  1. I like these all very much, Marina Sofia. There is something about those lovely farmhouses, isn’t there? That modest little one – the first one from Mitula Immobilier. – looks exactly right for me.

  2. Oooh, they’re lovely – the second one down is particularly appealing, which may be down to the colour scheme. Can I run away to one of them please, because England is not appealing much at the moment… (or maybe I should just hop back up north to my home country!)
