As with any major decision, there are pros and cons to be considered in looking at every angle and at the various options involved. And so it is after 8 years on the French Riviera, I am hoping to move (eventually) to the Dordogne area of the Aquitaine region of France – a sunflower/green fields-dotted kind of region with many chateaux and closer to Paris! It is up to the “universe” at the moment, as to when my current house sells (see link below), and when this plan can become more tangible. As they say, timing is everything.
I have also been entertaining the idea of running a 2-3 bedroom B&B in that area, since you can get much more house for the money there (the French Riviera is the 2nd most expensive place to live in France). After reading many how-to/dummies/idiots books and doing much on-line research on the subject, I have to admit I am still undecided.
So my question remains: To B or not to B(&B)???
I guess only time will tell – stay tuned!
