Saturated by beautiful old manor houses and cottages, France is a dream location to live the shabby dream, or just visit to scour the many markets and snap up some truly original French fares. The owners fell in love with the simplicity of farm life and healthy living. They bought a old farmhouse with tower and barn and started to live their dream. This beautiful home in the Dordogne region of France was built in the early 18th century. The house is bursting with character and typical French features.It is owned by a British couple, who live here with their 2 daughters. The home is simply furnished, cleverly combining old and modern pieces.It wasn’t an easy transition, learning a new culture and a new language, but they persevered and now have a successful organic farming business. The stone walls and floors, beautiful fireplaces are all original and restored features. Modern additions have been kept to a minimal and come in the form of products such as the bathroom fittings and kitchen etc.
