Come sit awhile, let’s just be. A place of French peace for you and me….


Into life flow moments that take your breath away and Belle and I were blessed to share one.

It was lunchtime and pottering in the kitchen I became aware of a new noise coming from the sky. Belle and I went outside to see hundreds of Cranes calling to each other as they flew South for the Winter. They fly in V’s with the newborns from this year nestled safely between them. They climb high if any buzzards are about and we watched them circle ever upwards till they were safe. It was magic and a blessing to see. I have never heard a noise like it and we could still hear them long after they had disappeared over the horizon. Nature’s wonder unfolding and Belle and I sat watching the sky for many magic moments.


The peace of this place is heartfelt. It seeps into your soul and you rest into it. The simplicity of life and the warmth of the sky meeting the earth in harmony weave a fabric for life that is natural and allows you to simply ‘be’.

From my ‘heart’ family there is a home for sale nestling next to the Dordogne river. It is a wonderful mixture of an old stone farmhouse with log burners and fireplaces, wooden floors, stone and wooden barns, old pigsties, workshops and sheds. Oak, walnut and fruit trees, land sloping down to the river and all within walking distance of Gardonne, which has all the services you need.


Not quite my time to make the move, otherwise I would be there like a shot. It’s perfect for someone though and my heart wanted to flow the magic to share with you all, just in case that someone was you.

The link below will give you the full details:

      Hello Ian, how lovely to hear from you. I love that my friend in Sweden passes the place where the baby cranes are born every day on his way to work, then another’s friends Mum watches them fly over her home in Germany and there in France I witnessed another part of their journey. We are all linked. Hugs for you. X

    Dear Jane,
    Thanks for sharing this!
    Yes, the Crane is a spectacular bird. They breed up here in Sweden. I use to see them walking on the fields every other day from my commuter train to and from work! I have a good friend in Somerset who told me that they try to make the Crane a regular inhabitant in England!

      Hello Lennart, how lovely to hear from you. The cranes go to southern Spain and Northern Africa I think. How good that you see them and they breed in Sweden. Look at the links we all have, isn’t life special? X


I love to hear from you and having different perspectives are what this is all feel free to let me know what you think.....
