Pop­pies

French Property News - - Reviews -

Paul Bur­dett, £24.99, ISBN 9780995790018 “We were stand­ing on the lit­tle lane which crosses the edge of the land, look­ing down a small, steep slope across a field of pop­pies.”

It so hap­pens that this same field of pop­pies be­came the plot of land on which Paul and Ca­role built their home in south-west France, near Gour­don. Paul writes about their event­ful jour­ney, span­ning 10 years up un­til spring this year, and re­lates the ups and downs of build­ing their home in this de­light­ful book.

Il­lus­trated with per­sonal pho­tos and il­lus­tra­tions and punc­tu­ated by de­li­cious French recipes the cou­ple have tried over the years, this book is a great ex­am­ple of how ex­pats chased the dream of build­ing a home in France. For those want­ing a first-hand and in­sight­ful ex­pe­ri­ence on build­ing a home in France, Paul’s book of­fers a very per­sonal yet re­lat­able story and should help many who want to live that same dream.
