OUR LITTLE BIT OF FRANCE
Fran and I bought a small house in France in July 2010. It's in a village called Caunes Minervois in the Aude valley near Carcassonne in South East France. We've Had several trips out there now, setting it up and buying furniture etc and now have it comfortable, so we can spend lots of holidays there, (that's the plan anyway). Here are a few pics, sorry they're a bit small but I hope you can get the feel of what it's all about. Here are some useful links with info about the village and the region.
