  • Castelnaud La Chapelle

    Built as a medieval fortress and most definitely used for purposes of war, especially during the 100 Years War period (1337-1453) where it passed back and forth between English and French ownership multiple times. When the war ended the Caumont family (see Chateau Milandes) regained ownership of it right up until 1779 when the French revolution resulted in it being re-distributed as a national building with the proceeds going to the Republic of France, after which it was used as a quarry before

  • Year Two Begins

    Arriving home to Badefols-d'Ans in late January after our first holiday was met with a thump! Guest arrivals and jobs were backed up and we couldn't find enough hours in our day. 'Quiet life' we thought as our brains were lost in the bars and restaurants of Edinburgh and on the beaches of Cornwall.

    Slowly boxes began to get ticked off and after a busy month there was light at the end of the tunnel. We can slowly retract back to our 'quiet life' for a period of time!

    Having been here in the Dordogne for just under a month. Today we took time to recap on all we've achieved so far and thought we would share.

  • Route de la Noix

  • And so it begins...

    This was a lifestyle choice for us, we both had good jobs and a beautiful home and enjoyed our holidays as much as anyone but we kept coming back to the same familiar dilemma of how to achieve a better work/life balance.
