French village life

I am very lucky to have had lots of fantastic clients over the last 15 years of running this business, many of whom keep in touch. I love to hear how their life in France has evolved, the work they have done on their house, the adventures they have had, their favourite walks, restaurants and places to visit and how their lives have changed since buying their French house.

This week I had such a lovely message from a past client who is just getting to know the other people in her village and wanted to let me know what a great and eclectic bunch of neighbours they have met, ranging from former flight crew to a musician to a Chinese doctor to name but a few. This perfectly encapsulates the wonderful mix of people we find in this part of France; city escapees, foreigners, locals who were born here and young couples and families reassessing priorities and seeking out a calmer, more grounded and rural lifestyle in beautiful surroundings but still with easy access to the culture and buzz of the big smoke (Toulouse).

It makes me realize yet again how lucky we are to have landed in such a special part of the world where so many people dream of living but only the more adventurous (or slightly crazy) actually make the jump. The result is villages and communes peopled with a wonderful jumble of people, nationalities, professions, and cultures all with one thing in common, the love of the good life that rural France can provide.
