    It’s time for me to purchase Rosetta Stone and learn French.

      You may also try the website or app called Duolingo, it is free and offers a fun way to learn a language!

        Memrise and Duolingo are helping me learn German, they are both great apps and have a variety of languages you can learn.

        Thank you! I will follow up with that suggestion. It is very much appreciated.

        I studied French for 5 years, went to France and didn’t speak a word of it. Not even “Merci.” I read classic literature, which can be peppered with French, and occasionally I find myself reading phrases without realizing I’m not reading English, but for the most part I am completely hopeless. I know next to nothing.

        But houses like this lovely home make me regret that. This would be an amazing place to start a new adventure.

          I agree with everything you’ve said. But I’ve learned something about buying property from experience – before you take the plunge, go there and rent it out for a month and see how you feel. Get to know the village, the people, the complexities of travel from the site, and also the house’s strengths and weaknesses. So many people fall in love with the dream of ownership, only to realize later that the reality is quite different. And once you are the owner, all the repairs and upkeep are your responsibility, and selling it can be quite hard. Sorry if this is a little too Debbie Downer, but age and experience have taught me a lot! My family continues to explore these types of possibilities as well, and we will do our careful homework.

          I hope you can come back to France and enjoy yourself, whatever the region, you’ll find good local food, wine, and cheese. It’s very important and always emphasized by expats living here that one should use at least 4 magic words to show that you try a bit to blend in: Bonjour, au revoir, merci, s’il vous plaît. I’ve read this a lot and i believe this is true, French ppl are very attached to their language and like to see people taking interest in it (as well as their culture, etc. anything French lol)

        I agree. Duolingo is awesome. I have ‘played with’ learning Spanish for years, but never had any luck. I have been using Duolingo for only a week and have learned so much. It also offers ‘Tiny Cards’ app to help you also. Try them both-you won’t regret it- it’s free!

    I just can’t get over how inexpensive these properties are! Can you imagine this in the USA? How ’bout in Portland (OR) or even worse, NYC? Sheesh.
    It’s really beautiful and looks like it wouldn’t take much TLC to make it shine.

    OMG that canopied bed is the bed I always longed for as a little girl! Is the tunnel on the property? Or is that part of the chateau view?
    I love all the stone and beams. Looks like they used a full on tree in the barn for a cross beam!
    I love it!

    Langeais, Loire Valley,

    I may be wrong but I think it would be somewhere near/behind this property (Manoir de Nanchapt), as we can spot 2 different towers and church-like stained glass window on the garden pics: https://goo.gl/maps/UPxJBvDN93B2 . There is a square-roof tower in the courtyard of this building, and in a backyard “rue des remparts” we can spot a tower-roof too on the aerial view.

    The vaulted tunnel is incredible, never seen anything like that!

    Now you can see why so many Brits retire in France.
