Having trailed round our local SuperU several times, I cannot find icing sugar here, just a huge variety of granulated sugar.  Does anybody know what it is called here in France and indeed if they have it.  I have always tended to use this to decorate my fairy cakes with the kids and desperately need some more!!becci

Does anyone know if cream cheese (or an equivilant) is available in France?  I'd like to make a cheesecake for a friend's birthday, but without the cream cheese, I'm kind of stuck!  How about sour cream? Thanks!

Hi everyone I have a house and assemblement of buildings near Guingamp. I am interested in renting some land to keep sheep as thats what Ive been doing in England. Anyone got any Ideas on where to start looking? I would estimate an area of approx 50 hectares of grassland would be needed, maybe not all in the same location but hopefully not too spread out. Also does anyone know where to contact the local agricultural office about the rules and regulations etc? Many thanks lloydy

Hi everybody.  Have just joined the site and what a find it is! Very useful and very pleased to find it. I have two questions which I would like to put to all of you living in  Brittany.  Those of you who work(own business or employed) - have you found it very difficult?  We have been told that  it is very hard to make enough to live on (especially after tax!) as unemployment is high and wages very low and thus not much money being spent either. Secondly - do any of you know any names and pref e mail addresses (or address and phone number) of any notaires dealing with coastal areas? Merci beaucoup for all answers in advance. Heather

Just thought I'd share my fun experience at Carnac with anyone else who has passed by and wondered how it works. I and 3 other women friends went to Carnac and had hydrotherapy. We went in the underwater gym which was great fun, relaxed in the quiet room, drank herbal teas, had an algae wrap (round bodies, not to eat!), had a hydro bath, went in the ordinary gym and swam in the large pool. It was interesting and relaxing. All the pools were salt water and although it was predominantly females there were plenty of men there. A relaxing day or morning after lots of renovation! regards Sunshine

Hi everyone This is my first posting and a request for your experience really. A couple of years ago, we spent New Year at our local bar at Pont Samuel, near Silfiac. The then proprietors, Rene and Marie put on a meal and decorated the bar, but apart from our family and two friends who had come accross with us, the rest of the people who came to the party were one french couple and the others were all men, who seemed to be "single". Whilst we made the best of the low turnout we did have a good night, but wondered if this was the norm. So my question is - What does happen at NY in the Silfiac area, do the Bretons celebrate at home or have a party somewhere else? What happens at Christmas? I would love to hear from the residents certainly around the Cleguerec, Guemene areas (the largest big villages near to us) - what happens? We would love to try again 'cos of the gap between October half term and Feb half term is just too long..... Thanks Gary

Thank you for the organisation Kitty and the efforts of the staff involved who made it possible. "Bravo  !" And a huge thank you for everyone who came to Le Lion at Seglien today, which I thought went very well, our Lamb was delicious and warm apple crumble and custard finished things superbly. So nice to meet so many of you and sorry to any that i didnt get to speak to (but I'm not one to try to hog the Limelight  :o). You all know how to contact me if I can help after all . . . . . . My best regards, (And looking forward to the next one) Bob

Help,  my teenage daughters love their new life in france but they are missing their dance classes.  Can anyone recommend Jazz, Tap, Stage or Ballet classes in the Chateaulin area?  Apparently ballet was offered to the community earlier in the year but there were not enough takers to set up the class.  Group tuition is important to them for social reasons rather than one to one tuition rosie

I am resident in area 56 near to Pontivy, and thinking of introducing curry evenings, at this stage,once per month - having cooked Indian cuisine for a number of years and taught by an Indian chef, I was wondering what the interest would be - any replies greatly appreciated.
