Happy Thursday! Today the lovely Margot from @la_maison_de_margot wishes to advertise the sale of her family farm in the French countryside, a peaceful property including farmhouse circa 1888 and a heritage half-timbered barn, situated on a large garden plot full of fruit and walnut trees!
This is a beautiful countryside property. In the past, the barn has been used as a brewery, but the property could also be transformed into a tranquil bed & breakfast. I would love harvesting the fruits and nuts from the trees in the garden and transforming them into treats for guests. A lovely property with warm feeling.
