In which we undertake to buy the farm

51 acres. Rustic log cabin (more than 150 years)Used as a country cottage. Old cedar barn. Very peaceful; wildlife. Located in the Glengarry Highland Games country between Montreal (120km) and Ottawa (75km). Furnished, lawnmower included plus some tools. Surface well, no electricity no running water.Easy access to all services in Maxville and Alexandria and to highway 417.

Who wouldn't jump at a chance like that? Well, most people, I guess. It was love at first sight for me, though. We just need to get all the legalities out of the way, and we'll be proud owners of a 19th century farm.


  1. Good day,
    I'm Miguel and Céline's daughter. I spent many many amazing days at 'santa paz'. I'm so glad to know that the people overtaking the farm have such appreciation for it. I am sure you will love it more and more every year. This place is a little bit of part of me and I will be following your blog with interest.

  2. Hi Chloe,
    We really are thrilled about owning Santa Paz, although it feels a bit like we're just taking care of it. Like it has a life of its own. There's so much peace and tranquility (just what we need!). I hope you won't be too freaked out to watch as it becomes a part of us. I'm hoping it will be an anchor in our daughter's life, too.
