Inspired by breathtaking views and romantically dreaming of finding love in the mountains, Tony Hawks impulsively buys a house in the French Pyrenees. Here, he imagines, he will finally fulfil his childhood fantasy of mastering the piano, untroubled by the problems of the world.

However, Tony's hopelessly ill-prepared stumbling into the world of overseas home ownership is perhaps best read as a useful manual of how not to go about buying a house abroad. He foolishly elects to build a swimming pool himself and takes his experience of relationships to a new level when he finds himself co-habiting, not with a beautiful French woman, but with a middle-aged builder from West London.

Yet, as Tony and his friends haplessly attempt to integrate themselves into local village life, they learn more about themselves and each other than they ever thought possible. Download and start listening now!

    " An fun, light read and an excellent holiday read indeed! I'd never heard of Tony Hawks before but can't wait to read his other books:) "

    " I was disappointed with this read. It's an easy-going and pleasant travelogue, but not much more. I expected some witty insights or clever humor, but found neither. I've heard great things about this author, and will likely try again with another of his books, but overall I found this book bland and uneventful. "

    " Fun, quite interesting. Not so good as "One Hit Wonderland" or "Round Ireland with a Fridge" by the same author. "

    " I prefer Tony Hawks when his humour is laugh out loud rather than whimsical. Still a pleasant enough diversion. "
