“About five years ago, I purchased two cottages adjacent to each other in one garden. They’re in a small hamlet called ‘Les Granges’ located on the outskirts of a rural village called St. Dizier Leyrenne in the Limousin region of central France. My main intention was to develop the properties for holiday lettings.
I began to renovate the houses, and it was during this time whilst installing a new window, I caught a glimpse of an elderly man in overalls and a straw hat.
Intrigued by his presence and his unknown identity, I proceeded downstairs through the cottage and exited, into the garden, and to my amazement he had curiously disappeared. I patrolled around the perimeter of my garden, but not a soul was to be seen.
