At the start I wanted to buy an apartment in Paris, by the end I wasn't so sure, it seemed that if you weren't from France, you were "ripped off". Barbara was extremely trust worthy with anybody and it seemed to get her into trouble. Cannot believe she didn't do any research into obtaining quotes etc, before flying someone from Australia who didn't know anything about France building laws.
