This chapter describes the house in Fayence purchased by Iris Barry's friend Chick Austin in late 1954. The structure was built during the medieval period and renovated in the seventeenth century. It lacked central heating and needed extensive repairs; Iris' partner Pierre Kerroux offered to do the work while he and Iris continued to live at La Bonne Font. Iris and Pierre later sold the farm at La Bonne Font and moved to the Austin house. The Austin residence was a townhouse squarely placed at the entrance to downtown, where traffic flowed and people and shops were in close proximity. If Iris and Pierre were to survive, they would have to find new sources of income. Under these circumstances Iris began a relationship of occupancy of the Austin property that would last until her death in 1969.
