Some of us can’t walk by a needy pet in the window of a pet store without immediately bringing it home to feed it, nurse it, love it and adopt it as the newest member of our little family.
And some of us can’t walk by a needy, crumbling, 17th century house in the south of France, without thinking of ways to feed it, fix it, water it and adopt it … as the newest member of our little Huffington family.
Oh dear. We’re busted. Again!
So without going in to tremendous detail (we’ll save the juicy parts for later), we are in the process of adopting a little Provençal jewel that has lovely 300 year old bones, but needs a dose of TLC, a lot of updating and, because it is located in one of the sunniest places on earth, and because we can’t live without it, a swimming pool. And that is the subject of today’s dilemma.
And then all we have to do is add a little swimming pool. Which is where all the dreaming comes in. To get inspired, we’ve started a little collection of favorite courtyard pools …
And my personal favorite inspiration?
So what do you think? Are we crazy? Should we adopt this pet project, and have just one more excuse to visit our favorite place on earth? (By the way, we’ll be announcing our 2015 trips to Provence shortly, so let us know if we need to sign you up!). And please tell us how you would add a courtyard pool. Who knows … Maybe we’ll adopt you to help design our newest pet project in Provence!
Ta ta …
