Start A New Life In This Bargain French Property For Your Family
Just reduced to €165,000
Do you ever feel that there might be a better way of living? Imagine moving your family to France. To a part of the country with plenty of warm sunshine, where life is lived outdoors so many months of the year, a place where children are free to roam wild in the countryside. Where they go to the local school and learn to speak fluent French. Imagine being part of the community in a small market town, where everyone knows you and your children, where you all look out for each other. Does this sound too idyllic to be true? For me it wasn’t. I helped to bring my granddaughter up in Languedoc Roussillon when my daughter and her 3 month old baby moved in with me. We experienced the crèche, maternelle, primary and some college education and I was so impressed with every stage. I can remember clearly days when the children were taken to the boulangerie to learn to make bread, to the vineyard to collect grapes and tread them to make their own grape juice. I remember all the carnivals, the festivals and school fairs. And, as a family, we loved every minute of it and I now have a granddaughter who is not only bi-lingual but also bi-cultural. None of us would have given up a minute of her growing up in the sunshine of the south of France.
Not only did I have my daughter and granddaughter living with me in our French property but my very elderly parents were also with us. They were able to enjoy all the activities of the university of the third age, impeccable medical attention, friendship and respect from all our neighbours and slowly learnt some basic French. Their lives were certainly enriched by the experience. There can be no doubt that France is the place for family life. Nearly all the friends I made, when I owned my French property, were living in extended family groups aided, doubtless, by the availability of large properties at bargain prices.
