    Did you choose then name of the house or was it already named?

      Chris – That was the first question that came to my mind too.

      • More on that later, but it is the name that came with the house. Most homes and farms are named in this area – road signs will point to “named properties” before they actually identify the name of the road.

        Only in France.
        Cheers
