Perry and Caroline in france

Bienvenue chez Perry et Caroline.


Hello everyone, life in the country has been rather too busy lately for us to maintain this blog, but there is still plenty to see and read. The house has taken giant leaps as the outside walls, the barn and the salon all get a facelift. We hope to pop back now and then with updates, but our website, shows all Perry's work. Check the EVENTS page for exhibitions and market appearances.

working on the barn
The barn and outside of the house got a new coat (or two) of chaux. There will be a roof between the house and barn too by March 2013

plastering the ceiling
the damp salon had all the cement taken off the walls and replaced with lime (chaux) the plasterer re did the ceiling à l'ancienne

the salon almost finished
The salon is now our den, library, tv room and Caroline's office. There is now a wood burner and subtle lighting installed. Cosy!

Perry's online boutique

We are selling Perry's funny drawings of life in the French countryside at several markets, this spring and summer in the Gers and Hautes-Pyrénées. You can also buy reproductions of his art on his new site. To see all the drawings, please go to


Perry's graphic design site is to be found at La Baguette Magique.

Have a wander round the site. One big addition to the site is our Help & Tips section. So many people ask us stuff about moving, buying, renovating, artisans and translating, that we decided to create a host of facts and links for those of you fancying a life in France. To back it up, we've created a bookshop with loads of invaluable and interesting books on renovating, French law, planning permission, living and working in France and learning French. When you buy via the links on our site, we get a little commission, but you don't pay a penny more. It all goes towards the time we spend keeping the site updated.

So that's it for now. Grab a glass, better still, grab a bottle, sit back and plunge into the tales of life down in the Hautes-Pyrénées.
