Dear Corey, was
You must see the Liam Neeson Film, called Made in Italy.....it matches the photos you sent...

Replace "Italy" with "France" and your description sounds just the way you used to describe living in your current location. I see a new remodel project in your future.


I see an Italian farmhouse in your future…:)

The first and last picture looks so similar to parts of California- just beautiful.


Oh, Corey!
It so beautiful! I totally understand the allure and the excitement of a beautiful dream.
Thanks for sharing it with us.
With love from one dreamer to another…

The love you feel for Italy is evident in the way you are caressing it with your poetic description and beautiful photographs. It would be hard not to love Italy, especially the countryside.


What a beautiful dream. I hope it comes true! I can relate to the beautiful simplicity that is so magical.

It’s not rice fields, but it’s pretty rich.
Hello Corey, I’m rarely visiting your blog but this is wonderful.
I love how you articulate so beautifully what you sense in this place. Now I want to go there. Even more, I want you and Yann to move there if that’s what your hearts are telling you.


Oh, a farm house to renovate! What a delicious dream.
