Genteel French Family Estate on Five Acres – Puy-Guillaume, France – $371,000

Happy (busy) Tuesday! Delightful 19th century manor house on five and a half acres!

This house is what I imagine when I hear someone talk about their ancestral home – an old place, well-used, well-worn, and well-loved. I love that nothing in this home is shiny and new – all of it has been kept and cared for generation after generation. Imagine how many fires that hearth has seen! I would love to escape to this estate and just live simply, enjoying each moment, making necessary repairs, and hosting family and friends. Catching trout from the pond. Card games late into the night. Quiet moments soaking in the history and the quiet.
