It was a very long day as it turned out but hopefully worth the journey.
We were collected at the airport and taken to see the house near Le Rouret. It was just as I remembered it and with blue skies, sunshine, bees buzzing and the scent of rosemary in the air, perhaps the best day to see it…

From there we were dropped off in Valbonne for a nice lunch sitting in the square in glorious sunshine. For a Thursday it was a nice alternative to being at work as we shared a carafe of rosé.
After lunch we hopped on the bus to Antibes, for a Euro. We met with the notaire and signed the compromis de vente, a promise of sale which means we now have forty five days to scrape our pennies together to see if we can afford it.
Things slowed down a little after meeting with the notaire. Our flight was delayed, there was no train at Gatwick Airport and we missed the last tube home. Crawling into bed at 3am we were exhausted but we hope it was worth it.
And so now we wait and hope…
