TV viewers stateside are in for a treat! House Hunters International is airing a show on HGTV featuring Uzes on Monday night, January 18th.
A few months ago I received an email from Erin, a new reader of the Barefoot Blogger who lives in Birmingham, Alabama. She told me she discovered Uzes through my friend Ginny Blackwell’s website, International Property Shares. When she googled “Uzes” for more information, she stumbled on the blog.
“We have loved learning about Uzes through your blog and feel a special connection because you are from the southern US as well. We are also weak on our grasp of the French language,” Erin said in her note.
Since her first note, Erin and I have written back and forth about her visits to Uzes. Now she and her husband have decided to move to Uzes, along with their four children! Their story will be highlighted on House Hunters International on January 18th, 7:30pm CST and 8:30pm EST.
Here’s the promo for the show:
Erin and Stuart have a storied history in France; they got engaged in Paris and returned to be married. Now, the two of them have formed a large blended family with 4 children and they’re hoping to own a piece of the country they’ve grown so fond of. Paris is a bit too crowded and busy so they’ve opted for the peace and beauty of the south of France. They’re unsure of what town to settle in, but they know they want enough space for the whole family. Erin would love to move in to something turn-key right away, while Stuart is open to renovation and putting his own stamp on a property. Find out which sensibility prevails when House Hunters International tours the south of France.
At the time of the show’s airing, Erin hadn’t seen the video. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to be looking for some of my favorite spots!
