Dordogne…the Pantry’s have arrived! 

Pantry's Dordogne

I’m sitting here writing my blog snuggled up in our rental gîte, with a glass of vin rouge with a big grin but tired bones.

Been a very busy 48 hours, moving house then staying in Dover with two girls who hate sleeping. Up at 2:30am😪 but the trip to our gîte couldn’t have gone better, thankful for the safe journey.

We meet with the notaire (solicitor) on Monday to sign the Compris de Vente and start formal proceedings, which takes around 2 months. We are committed at this stage so no going back! 😱 On Tuesday we see the campsite and house and gite again, hoping to take lots of photos and put a plan in the place for the glampsite.

But in the meantime, we are making the most of the beautiful sunshine and we have visited a bustling local market in Thiviers, Ben asked for 24 potatoes in French, which the lady found hilarious 😂 After a classic lunch of baguette, Brie and grapes we had a hike around the fairytale chateaux at Jumilhac de Grand, only 6 miles away.

Hence the big grin and tired bones but most of all, a happy soul.

Bon soir  🇫🇷
