Publisher's Summary

Inspired by breathtaking views, and dreaming of finding love and romance in the mountains, Tony Hawks impulsively buys a house in the French Pyrenees. Here he imagines he will finally fulfil his childhood fantasy of mastering the piano, untroubled by the problems of the world. However, Tony's account of stumbling into the world of overseas home ownership is perhaps best heard as a useful manual of how not to go about buying a house abroad. The man who once travelled around Ireland with a fridge is hopelessly ill prepared for this latest adventure - though the consequences are hilarious.

Truly a true story!

I found this book fascinating, as Tony Hawkes' experience almost exactly mirrors my own, although I live in the Limousin area of France. Maybe the French aren't quite as friendly here, but the builders and buying processes are exactly the same!
