❤️ Big Sky is now up for sale ❤️
Con and I invested a week in Southern France researching various areas and touring many houses for sale to ascertain whether the area would be for us or not. You might imagine stepping out of the "living aboard" lifestyle hasn't come easily, and we're seeking a lifestyle on land that will be equally spectacular. We've considered returning to our house in Calgary but the harsh weather isn't pleasant for us. We considered Vancouver Island, Spain, Portugal, and now Southern France. France ticks off all the boxes for us, with just the one concern, our lack of the French language.
Landing in beautiful Lisbon at night, lights lit the hilly capital city for as far as we could see. After all, it is the most densely populated city in the European Union.
