French property restoration opens new doors for owners

A sculptor and his wife have restored a beautiful property in France, near the medieval town of Uzes.

The Languedoc home of David Horsman and Celia Indsell, which is full of their artwork, now has a sandstone floor which they shipped from India, the Telegraph reported.

A quarter of the house had fallen down when the couple bought it for £160,000 in 1999.

"David's family had long owned a holiday home nearby so we knew the area well, but were lucky to find something that was isolated yet close to towns and only 40 minutes from Nimes airport," Ms Indsell told the paper.

The couple added a 120 sq yd colonnaded terrace to the 17th century property, some of which dates to Roman times.

From the upper floor, where the master bedroom's ensuite is located, panoramic views can be enjoyed.

According to a study carried out by, France tops the house investment list.
