Have you ever wanted to buy a house in the south of France--perhaps the Languedoc Roussillon--and live there?

If you have, you can get tips on how to go about the gritty details of purchasing property in that area at EscapeArtist.com. You can also get information about how to buy property in other wine-friendly parts of Europe, like Italy and Spain, or really any part of the world you like. Even if you don't have the slightest intention of moving abroad, it's fun to scroll through the real estate listings and dream.

A little sample to tempt you:

Former winemakers’ homes (domaines de vigneron) are easily found in Languedoc Roussillon, south France (no surprises there - it’s the world largest single wine producing region) ditto stone-built terraced village houses built over two or three floors, with small windows and no outside space to speak of. Converted silk mills can be found as you follow the Herault river path inland; head up into the Cévennes peaks and you’re in chestnut country, where ancient stone-built houses and clèdes (chestnut drying barns) perch on steeply terraced land farmed by Cevenol families over the centuries.

The site also has lots of information on living overseas, working overseas, retiring overseas...it looks like an excellent resource for anyone considering, or just imagining, some serious world travel.

Check out the resources available on this interesting site.
