This weekend is the annual Heritage Days event (Journées européennes du patrimoine) throughout France. Almost 17000 architectural and environmental heritage sites will be open to the public free of charge. The abbey at Cerisy-la-Forêt in Normandy is just one of the sites participating in the event.

Until 2014 I worked in central London as a marketeer for a membership organization. Years of watching property renovation programmes on TV sparked a dream to do this in France having studied French and worked there previously. I left my job and completed the sale of my house on the same day (a stroke of luck rather than good planning) and headed off to Normandy. I undertook a barn renovation project managing the artisans’ workload. The result is a 3 bedroom gite which I now market all year providing me with endless opportunities to increase my skills and knowledge.
