Charles and I were delighted to visit Adrian and Moira Kinnear King in their new home, a 900-year old farmhouse just outside Sguret in Provence in France, which they bought two years ago. Built by the Knights Templers as a Commanderi, the house had not been lived in for at least 100 years before Adrian started transforming it into a family home. It already has a new roof, new wiring, new cedar beams and new plumbing, all being done or project managed by Adrian. Moira is yet to begin on the garden. The view from their windows is to die for – they look out over the vineyards of Rasteau and Roaix and can see the foothills of the Alps which rise from the Rhone Valley. Their village is one of the ‘most beautiful villages in France’. Moira and Sam (their dog) are there for a two-week visit from Fersfield. You can see Sam is very much at home in front of their wood burning stove in their first ˜almost finished” room. Adrian’s paintings cover many of the walls – the walls if they could speak would I am sure have many stories to tell. Good luck to the Kinnear Kings – they will be much missed back in Norfolk once they sell their house and make the final move.
