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?

This one is slightly more expensive, but has extensive grounds and outhouses. From

The real dream, this 13th century renovated chateau in Oyonnax, only 9 minutes from Geneva by helicopter! From
