Description

A joyous and life-affirming story of one family’s move from London to a rural French village

One day a Londoner and his wife went a little crazy and bought a crumbling house in deepest Languedoc. It was love at first sight.

Slowly the family make this house a home, they get to know the locals and these busy English discover slower joys – the scent of thyme and lavender, the warmth of sun on stone walls, nights hung with stars, silence in the hills, the importance of history and memory, the liberation of laughter and the secrets of fig jam.

One Place de l’Eglise is a love letter – to a house, a village, a country – from an outsider who discovers you can never be a stranger when you’re made to feel so at home. Old houses never belong to people. People belong to them.
