Isabel Marant and Jerome Dreyfuss may love to holiday in a cottage with no electricity or running water, just cooking what I imagine is a gamut of raw food/salad-y type of meals with cheese and bread (a french staple, non?) but they're lucky they go in the SUMMER. I once went to a lovely little farm house cottage not dissimilar to this one. It was rustic and cute, surrounded by greenery and filled with antique board games. But we went there in the dead of winter. And the pipes had frozen, and the electricity had blown. Whilst I had a lot of fun building card houses and reading books by the fire, it was very, very, very cold. And the whole no water thing was a real problem. In the summer? Fine. Isabel you go right ahead. But idyllic though this may look, I am wary of any kind of holiday in the winter to scarcely-used farm houses in the middle of nowhere.
