We moved to France in July 13 with our youngest son. We had an arrangement with a British teacher local to us (near Ginestas) who agreed to teach our son IGCSE's. Unfortunately, last week this agreement came to a crashing end. We are desperate to find someone who can help him for the last few months of his education. If you know anyone please do make contact

We are a Canadian family with two young kids (6boy &8girl) spending a year sabbatical in Sauve, France (30 mins NW of Nimes/50km N or Montpellier) - neither my husband nor I are working, so we are homeschooling the kids in order to leave more flexibility for travel. After 3 weeks in the region, we have not met any other kids for potential play dates... looking into local activities, but any suggestions would be welcome! Kids are more comfortable in English, but they are in French Immersion back home and need to practice their French as well!

Hello I'm an irish lady (have been living in france about 20 years now...). I have two girls 11 and 9 years old. I messed up the bi-lingual thing.... Since +/- 2007 and our return from the states we only speak french at home (my husband is french) - my girls have ok english (the eldest is good and was fluent at one point when we lived in the states and the younger one tries hard too). I'm working full time but have wednesday afternoons free most weeks. I'd love to meet up with other english/irish etc... mothers/fathers/families who have children around the samed ages as my girls so that we can get a little english speaking circle going and so that I can get back into ONLY speaking english at home.  We live in Aigues Vives (30).... Hope to have some replies !

We come and spend all of August every year at our house near Pezenas. We have a 7 year old daughter and 3 year old son. The daughter especially would like an occasional playmate. It would also be nice to meet other families down here.

Hi, we have a house in Pouzols Minervois near Olonzac and have three kids - girls aged 6 and 9 and a 6-year-old boy. We spend about eight weeks a year at the house but are hoping to extend this. We would love to meet other families with kids to broaden our local connections and give our very sociable kids more playmates. Rod 07957 424976.
