This is the story of a dream come true. In 1976, in the Lot-et-Garonne region of south-west France, Ruth Silvester and her family found Bel-Air de Grezelongue, a house that had been left deserted and uninhabited for ten years. They fell in love with it.
A House in the Sunflowers tells of their affair with the house, from the search and initial frustrations, their euphoria when they finally bought it and the challenges of renovation and gradual assimilation into the local community. It provides rare glimpses of French family life in the region that is considered the gastronomic centre of France, complete with mouth-watering descriptions of meals in the sun and fascinating insights into the history and customs of this area.
In this charming, funny and romantic book, Ruth Silvestre manages to include much practical and useful information for those who also wish to fulfil their dreams abroad.
