If you’ve ever dreamed of living in a château in France and being deemed as the châtelaine or chatelaine…think again! In this one-hour session on Zoom with moving-to-France and property expert Adrian Leeds, you’ll get the inside scoop on what it’s like to buy, own and reside in a real French château, and whether that dream of yours can become a reality or turn into a nightmare you weren’t expecting! Adrian has lived in France for over 26 years. Her expertise has been featured on HGTV’s popular show, House Hunters International. She understands the ins and outs of finding an apartment to rent or a home to buy anywhere in France (not just Paris). During this Zoom session, she’ll discuss the ins and outs of property ownership in France in a way that will help you determine where in France you might want to live, and the steps to finding the perfect home. The session will also include an open forum for questions.
