The View from Voutezac is a lovely little blog that has been going for two and a half ears now.
It is updated by Dave and Judy who say that they…. “have moved from the Cotswolds to the depths of rural France – and this is what happens next……”
According to the bio… Judy is a retired nurse, Dave is semi retired – but has set up a small business doing photography and floorplans for gite owners and estate agents. We have two children and two grand children.
The blog starts on the 19th of October 2009 when Dave and Judy say… We leave the Old Country……..
They seem to take things in their stride and say… “The house still needs some work – it probably always will. The house is dated from 1689, while the cellars are the remains of the village’s fortified walls, and apparently date from the 13th century.”
Just a week later and you can see from the photos in The Weather has perked up a bit how nice the house is!
They must be doing all right because at the start of November they are Really Settling in and Judy books a hair appointment.
That’s the first true test, you know. The first visit to a French hairdresser!
In We started our French Lessons on the 22nd we get to see some fantastic panoramic photographs of the area (just click on them to see what I mean!)
That snow scene is gorgeous!
And, as you can see from We have finally decided to decide on what work we need, even the non-panoramic photos are rather special too!
I think that I prefer the snowy photographs, such as those in With the cold weather we have had a pretty quiet time.
Although the sunny ones in Phew- a busy few days are also great!
That market scene look lovely!
As does that village on a hill.
So, summing up…
A lovely blog by a couple who really seem to have fitted into their new life in France.
For those who are interested in that sort of thing, there are loads of wonderful panoramic photographs on The View from Voutezac and they make a visit worthwhile in itself!
Even if you’re not so interested in photography, there’s plenty of interest at The View from Voutezac and I’d strongly recommend a visit.
It’s a gentle and calming sort of blog that, perhaps the youngsters with their discotheques and hippy hoppy rap music might might appreciate.
But for those of us on the wrong side of thirty, I’d like to think that we have the maturity and god sense to take the time to wander round and enjo what we see and read on The View from Voutezac
And me? Well, I’m going to take a look at We are now well into the season of Fetes and Festival.
That’s my favourite season of all!
All the best
