Description


There it stands, a thousand-year-old ruin ignored by the Languedoc villagers of Causses-et-Veyran who pass by it on their way to the church next door. But for Londoners Trevor and Kaz it's coup de foudre - love at first sight - and they buy One Place de L'Eglise.

Over the years they turn the house into a home. They navigate the language (apparently pré servatif's are not something put in sausages), floods and freezing winters. They make friends and encounter heartbreak. And eventually they find their place - their bar, their baker, their builder (ignore him at your peril).

One Place de L'Eglise is a love letter - to a house, a village, a country - from an outsider who discovers you can never be a stranger in a place that your heart calls home.
