Trains Planes, Automobiles and Bikes Buying a House in Provence

In three weeks today, we will be heading down to Provence, ready to sign the final documents needed to complete our house purchase, which, as you can imagine, is something we’re really looking forward to (to say the least!)

To be honest, we’d originally thought that just one of us would travel down to take over the house, with the other following a couple of weeks later. This required us to sign a Power of Attorney, which wasn’t a problem for us but became a major problem when we tried to get my hubby’s signature witnessed by a local Solicitor.

Continue reading here as Julie and her family reach the final stages of their home purchase in Provence.

It is not a process for the faint of heart, including working with local solicitors to get a Power of Attorney. As our Vaucluse Dreamer discovered, buying real estate in France is complicated, but now they will be happily cruising the roads of Provence on their bikes. Fortunately, train service from the United Kingdom to Provence is relatively painless on the Eurostar service (TGV).blank

Julie and her husband Andy started visiting the Vaucluse area 25 years ago & over the years have increased the amount of time they spend there with their growing family. She has a deep affection for the area, finding it is a great place to visit, where the whole family can relax and enjoy time together.

She longs for the day when she can ‘up-sticks’ from her home on Dartmoor & relocate to the Luberon and spend her days cycling, walking, visiting markets & brocante fairs and of course enjoying the local food and drink.

Her blog VaucluseDreamer gives her a space to highlight some of her favourite things about the area from places to visit to particular activities that she and her family all enjoy.

She hopes one day it will be a place where she can share the process of renovating a house in France, but at the moment that will have to wait.
