When wealthy Prinny de Rouget unwillingly swaps a life of shopping and socializing in London for changing her mother-in-law's incontinence pads in the South of France, the change proves all too much until gîte owner Liz McGuire steps in. Can she or her son Martin help the alcoholic Prinny, the stage struck Susannah Ward or recovering anorexic Orla O’Sullivan? But Liz has problems of her own. She and her husband Peter have spent nearly all their savings on renovating their gîtes near the famous city of Carcassonne. Will they be able to make enough money renting them out or will the lack of bookings force them to abandon their dream and leave France for good?
