Last week, we randomly met an American family who bought a chateau a few minutes from our little town in France! We couldn’t believe it — we so rarely see Americans around here, and if we do see them, they are typically just passing through on the way to the D-Day Beaches or Mont St. Michel. So it was really fun to realize we had new American “neighbors”.
The family is from San Francisco and they have two kids who match up age-wise with two of ours. They bought the chateau in 2019 and spent the summer there, but then the pandemic hit and they couldn’t come back till this summer.
They invited us over to take a tour of the property and I shared it all on Instagram Stories (Chateau Tour highlight). They were actually heading back to San Francisco just a few days after we met them, and it was such a happy accident that we found each other and were able to connect before they left town.
Would you like to see the tour?
Such a cool place! Have you ever thought about moving to another country? Where would you go? What would you like to do while you’re there?

I have been trying to convince my husband to move to Ireland since 2016. My father was born and raised there and emigrated to the US in the 1960s, but almost all of his extended family still lives in Cork City. I am also eligible for Irish citizenship through my father, as are our children.
So I would gladly move to Ireland, but I don’t know if I will ever get my husband on board. ;-)
Oooooo, I would love to rent a cottage with friends for an extended stay once Covid ends and my caregiving responsibilities end.
