With their wildly contrasting characters and constant bickering, old friends Nigel Farrell and Nippi Singh sought to buy and refurbish a ruined farmhouse in the Ardeche region of southeast France in the first series of A Place in France.
Despite undergoing Herculean trials, the two managed to secure their dream home. So much so that Nigel, seduced by the home, the lifestyle and his beautiful young mortgage broker Celine, decided to start a new life in the house.
But he has a problem. He needs to find a source of income. Improbably, he settles upon the idea of opening an Indian restaurant in this remote corner of France.
This eight-part series follows his progress as he tries to overcome minor barriers such as a complete lack of knowledge of Indian cuisine, a lack of restaurant management experience, and a lack of French language, in pursuit of the perfect new life.
