Ever wondered what British expat property owners get up to in France when their friends and relations depart? Or what’s it like living in France all the year round? These fictional tales reveal all. Unexpurgated! All is exposed. Unlike many books of this kind, the author plays no part in these adventures. He’s far too wise . . . or perhaps past it. But his humorous observations and revelations do suggest he has been party to many such goings-on.
The episodes in these books are complete stories in themselves and offer insights into property buying in France, dealing with the authorities, and generally getting along without upsetting the locals.
And if you don’t say to yourself after reading these tales, ‘perhaps I should think about investing in a small property in France myself’, you’ll not be human. But a cold bath might be wiser.
