France - E-mails from the High Corbieres 2

347 pages5 hours


This is the continuing story of how Bob & Abi found and renovated a dilapidated old country house with 6 acres in a tiny hamlet surrounded by mountains, deep in the Hautes Corbières; a region where ruined Cathar fortresses rise starkly against the skyline and place names are in both French & Occitan.

Set in magnificent scenery within a protected forestry and conservation area, the location has a timeless atmosphere. It is a haven for wildlife with a climate varying from snowy winters to summer Canicules.

A selection from eight years of humorous & informative e-mails accompanied by photos, chronicles their continuing renovation and life in a small, scattered rural community.
