So we have everything crossed that it all goes through OK.

Congrats!

A very nice place to live.
My grandparents used to live 40 years in Chatelaillon just a few miles North, nor so far from Saint-Jean d'Angély.

Many thanks!! - have to say with the rain hissing down here - we both are looking forward to starting the project - assuming all goes to plan.

Fully habitable but a good part of it needs renovation - so the plan is we go out to carry on when my son has to be back in the U.K.

Love the beeches on the coast - fond memories of when it gets too hot on the beech - moving back into the Pine Trees and sitting in the dappled sunlight.

Hope you don’t mind me posting on here, but I have been coming to France for years, along with Germany. My son lives in Germany. Has done since he was 18 years old, 53 now. Always enjoyed driving in France. Nowhere near as much hassle as in GB. Open roads abound everywhere. Drove down through France to visit Italy in 2006. Have many happy memories of staying in places with friends, all the way down to Briancon and over those beautiful mountain roads. We visit France every year, even if it is only on the way to Germany. Your comment about the way prices have risen over the last few years is the same for us. Of course the euro being stronger than the pound at the moment does not help, but it has always been swings and roundabouts the currency. The old saying you win some and you lose some is true. Looking forward to hopefully coming over later on this year to the Loire somewhere, so if I see you in your Rovers and MGs, I will give you a wave or a flash if it is safe to do so.
