We went skiing in France in March 2020 and never came home

AFTER traveling to France on a ski trip in March 2020, a family has no plans to return to Ireland.

Ody family decided to sell their Co Dublin home and stay in France permanently – after being stranded in Les Arcs in the French Alps at the start of the pandemic.

Mark Ody told Independence.ie: “The ski resort in France was immediately locked down the day we arrived – so we couldn’t ski. But anyway we decided to stay for the week.

“The kids will love the snow for sure and while the ski lifts aren’t working, it will still prove to be great fun to have the world’s largest toboggan run right outside our front door.

“We took our work laptops with us on holiday and it felt like a safer place to enjoy that fresh air. No one at our office in Ireland, so it doesn’t matter where we are working from.

“Days last for weeks, and weeks for months. The toboggans were put away when the snow melted, hiking boots were bought for everyone, and we hiked for hours during the summer.”

PERMANENT RESIDENCES

The term finally came and the two children of Mark and his wife Marie, aged six and seven, began their term at a school in France.

After a short trip home to pick up the family dog ​​when travel restrictions were eased, the family flew back to France.

Now, almost two years after initially being stuck in France to lock the door, the family is selling Dublin home and committed to French life.

Mark says: “Now we kids prefer French food to a baguette.

“It’s almost time to go home. But two years of fresh mountain air, winter skiing, summer hiking – with French food and wine – and we thought: ‘really, all this is just too much much to give up.’ So we decided. We stay for good. “

RESTAURANT HOUSE

The family home, at 85 Ashfield Road, Ranelagh, Dublin 6, is now on the market. Property sold for 1,275 million euros with special agent Sherry FitzGerald.

The stunning home is just under 2,000 square meters and over three floors. It includes four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a kitchen, living room, and dining room.

The property is ready to move in to future owners as recent renovations have shown it to have new carpeting and repainted interiors.
