Jean Johansson is helping photographer Sue and singer Chris find their dream home in the north of Limousin. They fell in love with this beautiful and historic region, popularly known as the Lake District of France, over ten years ago, and have been holidaying there in their motorhome ever since. Now, with a top budget of £90,000, they’re looking for a property with plenty of parking and outside space, which they can eventually retire to with their two dogs. Jean has 5 fantastic options for them to see but will any hit the right note and result in an offer?
