New York Photographers Pursue a French Country House, and a Fairy-Tale Life in Le Perche, France

Photographers Dawne and Dean had an idyllic life in Shushan, New York. Surrounded by family and friends, they felt secure and content in their beautifully restored farmhouse surrounded by lush forests. But that all changed after a photography trip to Le Perche, France. Blown away by the beauty of the region's manors and castles, they realized it was time for a change. So 45-years into their marriage, they decided to embark on the next chapter of their lives and relocate permanently to the French countryside. The move was risky since neither of them could speak the language, and when their home hunt started, reality sunk in. As they scoured Le Perche's quaint villages and towns, they quickly discovered getting a home that recreated the magic of their holidays would cost more than the 200,000 dollars they were willing to spend. And as they searched, they struggled to find a place with traditional charm for Dawne, but required no renovations for Dean. Find out if they find their French fairy tale when House Hunters International looks for a happy ending in Le Perche.
