Does anyone know where I might be able to buy a freestanding air con unit? I know B & Q sell them in the uk but wonder if anyone knows where I could get one here - my sons bedroom is in the converted attic of the house and its so hot up there already that I want to get one asap so he will sleep at night!! Thanks guys!
Can one get disposabel BBQs in the supermarkets in France? I have just spent ages scraping grease and burnt food off our BBQ grill and I have no plans to do so on hols :) We have a clever little stand for disposable ones we used previously which makes them burn better, allow air to circulate underneath.

I have just bought a property in France and need to equip it with a microwave oven. Would it be better to to buy this in UK or France? Is there the same choice and are they a similar price in France? Would there be any problem with the slight difference in voltage? The same question applies to electric blankets. I have heard that English TVs are not satisfactory in France. rosa
