My name is Bob and I got married to Vicky on my 60th Birthday summer 2014.
I lived in Spain for 5 years then moved back to the England met Vicky and stayed ahh lol
we have decided we are moving to France, we will no longer have a home in England, and this will be our forever home, my properties earns us enough to live so we do not need to work
however we will be purchasing our home in France from the sale of Vickys house in Hull.
we will not be looking for a mortgage,
so now the question is where lol, how long is a piece of string ha ha
our maximum budget is 110,000 euros if the house is perfect
but thats after we decide on the area, and of course some areas are cheaper more expensive etc
I personally would like a house in the region of 35,000 euros that needs renovating with land
we would like a house on the edge of a town or village so we can walk to the shops, probably within 4 hours of the ferry ports caen etc, so probably lower than the loire valley which I like the look of
if it's a market town either better, we have just got confused by looking at too much on the net
once we decide, I will come over alone for a week to narrow down the properties we have seen on the net, to a shortlist then myself and the wife ( the boss ) will come back to decide on the one
