By the time you’re reading this we will be on our way to the notarie’s office to sign the agreement to buy our new home in Fayssac.
Yesterday we flew into Toulouse and were greeted by a stunning blue sky and warm breeze, bliss.
We were to meet our agent and a builder at the house at 6pm so had some time to burn. We headed to an amazing DIY store called Leroy Merlin – think B and Q on steroids. Two hours later we left, spent of energy but feeling elated, just think of all the glorious hours that we will spend in that store yesssss.
Off we sped to Fayssac to see what the house would look like in the sunshine and boy oh boy we weren’t disappointed. The drive through the countryside and vineyards was stunning, the undulating hills, roads with plane trees all standing to attention filled our hearts with a warm feeling and the sense that we belong here. We stopped on the opposite side of the hill near vineyards to see what our village will look like from the other side.
As we reached the house we realised someone was there cutting the meadow that was calling itself our garden.
We stopped and peaked through the fence and sighed, so near yet so far away
Off we sped to take a look at the surrounding villages and we weren’t disappointed. Our nearest big-ish village is called Cahuzac sur Vere. It was next on our path our nearest village with amenities, small but with all that we need, bank, post office, village shop and a few bars, oh yes and two hunky police men stopping every other car for spot checks, mmm except ours hmmmmm.
Then off to Cordes sur ciel, the village in the clouds, absolutely stunning and a very steep climb to the heart of the village, but well worth it, we will be back to explore.
Then back to Fayssac for our meeting with our agent and the builder.
I let Kev walk the builder around and busied myself with taking photos of our house and land.
Here are a few

This area gets the last rays of the day and will have a large table under the tree for dinners and for working in the shade.
By now we have signed our life away and have seven days to pull out, but will we…. What do you think?
