We bought a vacation home in the South of France in August, 2018.
I have always loved visiting rural France, especially southern France! It's beautiful geography of rolling hills, mountains, lakes, streams, vineyards and mountains are so peaceful and healing my soul.
After much research online, and several trips to look at over 50 properties, we found the one to renovate in a medieval circulade that dates back to the tenth century. The house itself was originally built somewhere between the 12th and 16th century, based on the ground floor construction.
Here are a few photos of the renovation that was mostly done by my daughter and I, with the help of some local contractors. My daughter, Teal, is now planning on renovating a Palazzo in Italy near Naples and the Amalfi Coast which we recently visited. Teal is not only a makeup artist, but loves renovating and decorating houses and gardens. When she is in Los Angeles, she is available for hire for either.
