Good points
House and location are perfect, small remote town, with a large supermarket a ten minute car drive away.

Bad points
The village has no facilities. No cafe, tabac or boulangerie. There is however a bread van in the town square from 8.30 to 9.30 from which baguettes and croissants can be bought. Not quite the same as a boulangerie
