House in the sunflowers


House in the sunflowersIn the late 1970s in the south-west of France, Ruth Silvestre and her family found Bel-Air de Grezelongue, a house that had been deserted and uninhabited for ten years. They fell in love with it.

"A House in the Sunflowers" tells of their love affair with the house; from the ups and downs of buying and renovating it, to the challenge of becoming part of the local French community.

Sprinkled with mouth-watering descriptions of gastronomic feasts in the glorious sunshine, and fascinating insights into the history and customs of this stunning area, this charming, funny and romantic book is an absolute must for everyone who wants to fulfil their dreams of living abroad.
