Want to buy a house in Charente? Now here's an offer....
Spring is definitely sprung here in the Charente and the temperatures are in the high twenties.
Last week we went with some friends (& ex clients) to La Tonnellerie riverside restaurant in Chateauneuf sur Charente for a long and lazy lunch. It's a charming place in an idyllic spot with a small terrace and views out over the weir.
We slowly cooked in the sunshine whilst enjoying an excellent meal and David showed us a painting he had done to give as a gift to the owners of his favourite bar in Jarnac (pictured above).
I was blown away - it captures the essence and character of this typically French bar brilliantly. David told me that he'd been commissioned to paint a house in Montpellier too.
This got me thinking that having a painting such as this of your dream home in France would be a superb gift.
Therefore, dear readers, my offer is that any of you who mandate me to find them a property this year (2012) will receive a unique and original oil painting of their new house (subject to David's availability) paid for by yours truly.
All you have to do is quote "David Hughes fine art" before signing my standard T&C's and, of course, my search has to prove successful!
Now there's an offer you won't find from any other buying agent or estate agent in France.
