House for Sale in France


I like to contemplate life's next turn of events whilst surveying the gorgeous panoramic vista from Le Chateau and partaking of some light refreshment. Usually one of the excellent local wines from the Languedoc region.

This week has however found me crouched feverishly over the keyboard and waving aside all those other necessary tasks that fill one's days. Stoically ignoring the enticing sunshine and soireés I vigorously set to executing my grand plan.

It would be indiscreet of me to report the interest shown but I'm feeling rather pleased with my labour of love.

Time to collapse.

Honestly, my Broadband goes walkabout for two weeks and now, dear heart, so do you! The chateau looks absolutely ravishing; you deserve huge congratulations for all your hard work. Good luck with the sale - like everyone else I'm fascinated to see where you go next.

What a magnificent chateau. I've just shown my husband the photos and told him that I absolutely need it. Unfortunately, unless we win the lottery tout suite I shan't be getting my wish.

Your photos are breathtaking.

VASTLY underpriced, dearest......though probably right for a swift sale.....someone will be getting a jolly good deal. Where to next, I wonder?

Sally at that price it sounds like a snip. Are you sure you aren't setting it too low? A lovely house and income...just think of all the goodwill that goes with it.

I'm on tenterhooks. When will you tell us about 'the next instalment'? Will it still be in France? VLiF

Beautifully worded and photographed, Sally.

Wow - who needs an idiot agent when you can throw heart & soul into that fab presentation???? Up the price I say! They'll be fighting over it!

Edward said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I absolutely adore your beautiful chateau, and have instructed Milla to sell the dog and children post haste so that we can move, bag and baggage, this weekend. Seriously, good luck with the sale.

Sally, you must be so sad to be leaving your beautiful home. France is a wonderful and welcoming country and the region in which you live is stunning! I know how fond of it you are. Debs x

Lehners in France said...

Sally, Debs tells me you are on the market, so sad, I've always loved your place and all of those evenings chewing the fat and enjoying the wine. We have some people staying with us for the next couple of weeks, they have sold in the UK and are looking for a place just like yours. Would you like us to bring them over to you? They are cash buyers and are keen to be in before the end of summer. Bob

CAMILLA said...

Simply gorgeous Chateau Sally, I would love it. Someone who buys will be getting such a wonderful abode, best of luck with the sale Sally.

Will you be residing in France on your next venture?

Amazing amount of interest shown so I'm feeling quote buoyant, mind you I fell in love with it immediately so it doesn't surprise me.

Now if you would just like to form an orderly queue ........

Lehners in France. English tea or delicious sparkling cremente from Limoux when you arrive ?? Look forward to meeting you.

Sally, I found your Chateau for Sale whilst looking for a house in the Languedoc. Your mychateauforsale blog is very enticing, I will e mail you direct but well done for your excellent marketing. Page 1 of google no less. Are you looking to work your magic elsewhere ?

Hi Sally. Debs gave us your "blog" address as we are staying in her apartment for two weeks. We arrive on Thursday and are very keen to view. I will call you from Deb's when we arrive. Look forward to meeting you. Virginia and Nicholas.

Milla said...

is that you, chuck, all long haired, choke: BLONDE and gorgeous? and is now the time to say that it took 2 years to sell our house last time?? Ah, but it wasn't a chateau you remind me. Ah, then, I am silenced (temporarily)! Good luck ole sausage although have gone severely off you if you ARE blonde, to boot, you're meant to be dark! Comme moi.

Pondside said...

You're sure to be houseless in no time with that beautiful site! Well done! Someone will have a ready-made fairy tale chateau with a thriving business - lucky ducks!

Exmoorjane said...

Now THAT, Madam, is a stunning piece of marketing! Truly fabulous. If you're not sold in a week, I'll eat my chapeau. Now have to go back and look again as a) missed this bargain price and
b) missed the pic of you all blonde and beautiful (I always had you down as blonde btw).

This place is a BARGAIN, so love dangerously, if you feel a novel in you this IS the place to be, quick b4 someone gets there 1st!!
