Hi, I’m looking to move to Languedoc area in the new year 2021, travel restrictions allowing of course. I want to rent an unfurnished property to start to get used to the change and determine where exactly I’d like to settle. I’d like a 3 or 4 bed house in good repair with secure garden for approx a year, maybe longer depending on circumstances. I’d prefer not too isolated, somewhere with good community and ability to socialise (when kid starts again!) while not being too in each other’s pockets. I have a very well behaved puppy too, hence secure garden.  I’d also like somewhere undercover to park motorbike and good broadband is a must for work. I know, a lot to ask but if anyone knows of or has a suitable property that might fit the bill i’d be really appreciative if you could get in touch. Many thanks. A

I have had a contract with Teleconnect (Budget Telecom & now Mint) for over 12 years for their AngloPack. the phone and internet connection failed on May 8th and was not restored until mid-June. I was unable to contact them by phone or email with the provided contact details and moved my contract to SFR at approximately ⅓ the price. I cancelled my contract in June in the prescribed way and returned the Router. They still keep sending me invoices with their phone number to contact to discuss and never is there any one to speak to let alone leave a message. Does anyone have a similar experience or even know of a phone number/email where you can actually contact someone.

Hello everyone. Though not officially an expat in France, I am currently going backwards and forwards between the UK and Ginoles. I am trying to relocate over there and need a job. I speak fluent English, Spanish and Portuguese and basic French and have office management as well as translation experience. I wonder if anyone has contacts or knows of a local newspaper where jobs are posted? Ideally looking for work in areas of Quillan, Limoux, Carcassonne or anywhere within an hour of Ginoles.. I realise it isn't easy to find work in some of these areas but I am open to suggestions. Je vous remercie infinitement. :)

We are opposite golden sandy beaches and back onto a beautiful nature reserve which boasts endless amounts of wild flowers and bird watching is a favourite with our owners.Our Holiday homes start from just £15.995 , We have 2 and 3 bedrooms in stock with choices of double glazing and central heating.  For more information please email me on anne.white@parkdean-resorts.com I look forward to hearing from you but for now "bonne journee"
