    DescriptionHow much land is there altogether?' I asked. 'About thirteen acres,' said the estate agent. 'Whatever would you do with that much land? It's an awful lot to upkeep.' I grinned. No problem! 'I'd keep llamas and fly balloons!' A dilapidated, rat-infested stone barn might not be many people's vision of a potential dream home. But for Richard and Al, the cavernous, oak-beamed building in a sleepy hamlet in the Limousin region of France is perfect. Tussles with French bureaucracy and fierce storms do little to dampen their resolve as they immerse themselves in this quiet corner of France. Told by a well-intentioned if often hapless do-it-yourselfer, Richard's hilarious and heartwarming tale of a new life in France resounds to the Gallic refrain, 'Bon courage!'
