Classic story of a foreigner attempting to renovate a beautiful old house in France and coming up against many problems.

Anna Bibby owned a successful art gallery in New Zealand until one day, on holiday in France, she bought a falling-down house in a picturesque medieval village.  She doesn’t speak French, has no idea about French culture, she’s chaotic, has an affair with the tiler, the ancient buildings have many issues with leaking etc.  Despite all this the locals take her under their wing.

Beautifully illustrated with gorgeous photography, this is both an engaging read and also a beautiful book to pore over and dream of your own European adventures.
