They buy an entire village for just 26,000 euros: “And to think that we couldn’t even afford a house”

Who among us has not dreamed, at least once in their life, of having a house of one’s own in which to take refuge and relax ? More or less everyone, but that’s not always possible. There are, in fact, those who do not find the right one and those who, on the contrary, unearth it, but don’t have enough funds to buy it. A situation that two English gardeners have long lived.

Initially unable to buy even a one-bedroom flat in England, this couple even managed to acquire an entire village in Normandy for a few euros. You do not believe in it ? Mistake ! Because they have succeeded and have big plans for the future. Let’s discover them together.

Paul Mappley and Yip Ward are a couple from the UK. These two people, employed as gardeners, had always had great difficulty buying a house. “Where we lived, a small apartment cost over 300,000 euros”, they confessed. These figures were too high and unaffordable for them, which forced them to live in a caravan in Tunbridge, Kent, but something has changed. Yip received a call from a friend of his who offered tobuy his property for only 12,000 euros. A paltry sum, so the two men didn’t give it too much thought and agreed, settling in La Buslierea small village in Normandy.

Once there, the couple realized the case could get even bigger. In fact, they discovered that the whole village was for sale, and not just the house they had just bought. Thereby, by adding 14,000 euros additional, they became owners of the whole village with 6 cottages, 2 barns, a stable, a cider press, a well, a workshop and an oven. Of course, it wasn’t easy at first, there wasn’t even electricity, but then Paul and Yip settled in and now they really feel at home.

“It was so exhilarating to know that this vessel of history was ours”they said, “We were very lucky”. Their plans for the future are really interesting and incredible: they have decided that within a few years they will turn the place into a luxury tourist destination. A beautiful project which, if it succeeds, would be worth much more than the €26,000 invested in the purchase of the whole of La Buslière.

It only remains for us to wish them good luck!
