Helen and I have travelled frequently in southern Europe but have always had a soft spot for the south of France and fell in love with the Dordogne when we first discovered the beautiful countryside, culture and french way of life a few years ago. We had been looking for a property in the South of France for a few years and, after several visits to Provence and the Dordogne, we stumbled across 'Red Shutters' and, having seen many properties up to that point, we knew immediately it was 'the one'.
