Live the French dream: WIN 1 of 3 copies of ‘Our House is not in Paris’
Imagine making the plunge and moving to France to start your new life. Can you envisage the old chateau you would buy, and spend months painstakingly renovating it? Can you see yourself sitting in the backyard in the late afternoon sun, admiring the house you have brought back to life?
For Susan Cutsforth and her husband, dreams became reality when they moved from Australia to a quiet pocket of France to buy and renovate an old farmhouse.
Susan chronicles her experiences in her new book ‘Our House is not in Paris’. She explores the wonderment, hardships and rewards that came from such a daring and life-changing adventure.
Recently, Susan wrote for MaVieFrançaise®, describing her journey from Australia to France.
“This is not what everyone’s dreams are made of,” she explains, “a house with just a sink and old wood stove as the kitchen, the last update, tartan 70s wallpaper and a bathroom that resembles a box without air or light.
Are you imagining your French dream? Time to make your fantasies realities! And where better to start than reading the experiences of someone who has lived the dream for themselves?
