Good Monday morning. Today, wishing I owned this beautiful old home in Le Mans. I would play tennis, swim, do a little bit of business, and enjoy watching the most famous car races in the world. This three-bedroom home is so old and beautiful – built between 15th and 16th centuries, it still retains original fireplaces, staircases, and more. Can you imagine living here?
