of my great pleasures is getting to hear new owners describe their impressions of
"living in France" rather
than a "2 week vacation there".
It may seem like a trivial difference but I assure you it's not. You have a sense of belonging, of life really
slowing down, a developing familiarity with your own home, your village grocer
and your neighbor.|
another note, I was also very pleased to hear a former owner tell me that their
investment in their French home shares was one of the only investments which not
only survived our global meltdown, but thrived.
This share has appreciated by 23% since 2007.
may enjoy reading Marcie's (from
impressions of life a la MAISON BLEUE :
"I was ecstatic to be invited by the owners to
stay at Maison Bleue in the beautiful town of Quarante with my two girlfriends. It was a dream trip,
especially for a mother of an energetic two year old."
"I liked to open the French doors of Maison Bleue in the morning and listen to
the neighbor French children playing in the street, and the church bells- the
sounds of Quarante. "
"They welcomed us with open arms and did their very best to put up with our bad
French and American manners."
"If you decide to go to Minerve, be sure you plan a whole day for it. It will
take you that long. You don't want to rush- the French hate that. You must
"Oh, and if you do make it to Maison Bleue and my little town of Quarante,
please say hello from me to Frank and Jessie at Le 40"
|If you know and love the Languedoc region, its 300 days of
sunshine, fine wine and food, and of course, its history, then
Quarante ( where our new house is located ) and the region near the Canal du Midi, is a wonderful
place to land. You are only 30 minutes to Narbonne
plage and 45 minutes to Carcassonne, with easy
connecting flights to London.
