Here’s what we got: a (mostly) lovely Opel Zafira.   Opel is apparently a German car. The Zafira is a cool sort of half-way-between-hatch-back-and-mini-van.  It’s basically a decent sized 5-seater – but two smaller seats flip up in the back so it can seat 7 if you need (so yes – 2 of you can visit at a time – and none of you will have to sit on the roof).

We decided – a car in France is going to get really banged up, scratched, dented in the parking lot etc…. so why not let the previous owner take the hit for that.  It’s just “well broken in.”
