Can it be done or should we look at Bulgaria. :?

Found this advertised, sent a few messages before the owner came back to us.

H lives in dep78 and was going to arrange a group viewing at the end of next week.
Asked if we could look at yesterday which we did. Emailed to say we would buy it.
Sale agreed so he does not have to waste a trip down to rural France.
Its in a small hamlet near nowhere but very pleasant countryside.
The walls are good, the roof has a couple of small holes but nothing serious.
Detached house with barn, 800sqm

of land attached and a forest of 1.5 hectares.
Water and electricity connected and a pretty well.
It does have a cross opposite the house with a psycho looking baby Jesus. :lol:

That's remarkable! Well done. I was going to ask how you come across these houses but I guess it's a trade secret. How do you manage to take care of the grounds of all your purchases when you live at a distance? 1.5 hectares is a lot of woods.

I just re-read your post and it says you saw it advertised.

If the houses have gardens we keep them cut down, forests do not get touched.
We hunt the internet, get property alerts from most sites.
Notaires contact us when they have anything cheap or complicated.
Out of a 100 houses, there might be one we want but are not the only people looking so miss lots of them.
