Last summer we met Randy Lofficier, who is an American lady living over in Chalabre. She's married to a Frenchman, and they have just brought her mother over here to live in France with them. They bought the house we looked at in Chalbre in February,2007. Their plans are to prepare an apartment for her mother on the lower floor and break the rest of the house up into apartments. They have run into some trouble. She has a blog called PossumWorld, which is worth reading. She has a post up right now called "Spending Money in France" which you might enjoy reading, so below, I will put up a link to her website. Hope it works. Go read it.
