The Alliance Française de Napa will present “American Experience in Touraine,” featuring photos and anecdotes about the experience of an American family who owned a property in the region around Tours, France, from 2001 to 2009.
Alliance Française Board member Greg Luecke will present images and information about some of the many interesting chateaux, towns, troglodyte buildings, and other fascinating features of Touraine. He will show photos of Moulin de Malicorne, the gorgeous former flour mill his family owned in Sainte Maure de Touraine, including its beautiful lake and island.
You will hear stories about buying a French property, renovating a home, dealing with maintenance issues from nine time zones away, renting out the property to vacation renters, dealing with insurance and the legal system in France, plus the joys of making friends and exploring this delightful region.
Wines from the Touraine region will be served, along with cheese and hors d’oeuvres. The presentation will be in English, but there will be conversations in French and English afterwards.
FREE, with donation box.
