Anyone who has ever dreamed of running their own B&B or better still owning a holiday home in the South of France should watch this film. Caroline and Bertrand make the break and escape high powered city jobs to fulfil their dream of running a Bed & Breakfast. The house that they have purchased couldn't be more idyllically placed nestled in a valley filled with beauty and splendid isolation. The dream, however is soon turned on it's head. The upmarket clientele envisioned by Caroline turn out to be quite the opposite but provide for a summer of fun and awkward moments, from boy scouts to meditating hippies not to mention illicit love affairs and naturists.
All applications of city micromanaging serve to exacerbate Caroline's problems rather than solve them. Meanwhile, Bertrand, away from Paris takes to the open air and wild expanse of the countryside and village life with great enthusiasm but soon adds to Caroline's concerns when he befriends and parties with a gay couple who have converted their town house into a beautiful boutique B&B with fountains, swimming pools marble floors and sheer opulence. With their relationship at near breaking point Caroline sets out to win over the village (most of whom she's managed to alienate) by organising the millennial anniversary celebrations. Not having gone the way she would have liked Caroline packs her things and returns to Paris leaving Bertrand behind.....
