It is four years ago today that we bought our little house in Le Grand-Pressigny. Those years have flown by and we have grown to love the house and the village in a way that has taken us by surprise.
These before and after photos speak for themselves. It was a neglected, unwanted and unloved little cottage and is now a cosy, happy place for us to spend our holidays.
La chambre principale.
La fenêtre cachée.
There are still things to do. The bathroom will be refitted and the hot water tank moved into the cellar, making lots more room. The cellar will be made into a cleaner, more useable area for storage. The staircase needs decorating. Then it’s finished.
And then we can just relax and enjoy it.
I would like to say a huge “thank you” to Alex and Nicole of Les Limornières, who have done a fantastic job of looking after the house and garden for us. They have also worked very hard to bring about its transformation. Without their help we would never have got it this far in four years.
