London Standard - Brits are moving to the charente...
Nice to see some comments from yours truly in this article from the Homes & Property section of the London Standard.
"Brits want old Charentaise stone houses with pool and views over the vines," says Graham Downie of Cognac Property. Outside Cognac a four-bedroom house costs £139,250 though Downie suggests budgeting £217,280 to £261,100 for a detached property with views. "In Cognac or Jarnac a two or three-bedroom town house costs £87,030, or £130,550 for something special," says Downie.
I did get castigated by my friend Tim (who as MD of the most profitable ad agency in the WPP empire should know his stuff) for using the word "Brits". He says:
"By the way, using the phrase 'Brits' is the equivalent of saying trap (instead of bunker) or calling it the British Open - hang your head".
My apologies to all - I blame Samantha Fox and Mick Fleetwood.
