Two chest freezers to give away.  Good working condition but stored in a barn so not pretty.  I dont want any money for them but would ask a donation to be made to a dog refuge.  Either food, or blankets, or whatever.photos available.Near Dinan

Hi everyone,We're exploring options for internet access in rural Brittany. The 4G signal round us is pretty good, so one of the options is a 4G wifi router using the Free Internet 4G 100Gb simcard.However, the advert says that the bandwidth is reduced if you don't use put the Simcard in a Freebox (which we don't need because we don't have a landline). Does anyone have any experience with how much the bandwidth is reduced?I need a solution that will allow video conferencing and almost constant use of cloud services like G-suite and Office 365.Many thanks,Mark

Hi  Looking for  someone to manage holiday home change overs during the summer period.  Holiday lets tend to be between July and Aug. We have a 4 bed home with indoor pool that sleeps 8 situated approx 15km south of Dinan.  We are looking for someone local to be the key holder.  Typically manage the meet and greet, changeover & cleaning and some gardening.   Experience would be preferred. If interested please email me   Thank you for looking.

Hi All, We have a holiday home near Callac that we occasionally let. We are looking for someone who is reasonably priced to help out with garden maintenance and to turn the house over between rentals etc. Would most likely suit someone living nearby. I'm around this this week to chat with interested parties. Please DM me if you are interested with your location and costs. Thanks

Hi All, I have a sticky door and need to sand it down slightly. Rather than rush out and buy a belt sander for a one-off job (I also have one back in England)  I was wondering if there was a generous soul out there who could help me out in return for a few euros or a bottle of wine?Big thanks in advance, James

Hi, in Normandy and the Dordogne it is quite common for a service to cut down trees where the ‘cutter’ takes half the wood as payment and stacks the other half for you.Does anyone know whether this is done in Cotes D’Armor and, if so, are there any contact details. I would like (at least) 2 large oaks removed.thanks

We are looking to return to Brittany soon. We notice that many of the properties for sale have electric heating. When we lived in Brittany before we had oil as a fuel. Is there much difference in the running costs

Hello,Can anyone advise me how to cancel the building & contents insurance please. I have tried searching the forum with no luck but I'm sure that I read somewhere that a letter can be downloaded. The property concerned is in Brittany and we are in the U.K. so it would be useful to know if we can do it by post.Many thanks

Does anyone know of a company/enterprise who are prepared to cut and clear trees for their wood value.   The trees in question are oak, chestnut and beech and are all fairly substantial in size.   There are between 9 to 12 trees  with an approx. trunk diameter of  75 cms.
