Is anybody driving over to the UK in a van in the foreseeable future, west country ideally, that has We have a couch at my mothers house in Fougax (not quite in the Languedoc) that we'd like bringing over to Bristol. It separates into two pieces and takes up 1 metre cubed when on it's resting on it's sides. Can anybody help?
A quirky question for you...If you're based in the Pyrénées Orientales, do you fancy sharing your reasons for choosing to live here?I'm a freelance features writer and I'd love to find out what made you choose this area above others. I'm based in Brittany, so I know from experience that living in an area is very different from simply visiting.The piece I'm researching is actually about property and relocation, but I'd prefer to include direct experience to add another dimension to the article. For example, what's it like off-season or which aspects of life in south-east France are different from how you expected. What do you still love best?If you're happy to be featured in a longer section explaining how you found your property and have your photo in the piece, feel free to let me know. If you run a business, I'll give it a mention. Many thanks in advance to anyone happy to spare a few moments to contribute,Liza
I have just returned from one of my regular trips to the Aude. The public toilets if open were at best, terrible! At Leucate plage, toilets locked.At Franqui plage, toilets open but the water turned off!!! please imagine!!!At Aigues Morts lots of tourists, toilets locked in the middle of the afternoon!!!We had friends with us, which made it more embarrassing.Is this the norm!!
I really do feel I am going crazy with this whole Brexit uncertainty.. Briefly, my husband and I lived in Brittany for 10 years (early retirees, self supporting, not working) until 2 years ago and felt the pull of the grandchildren and moved to Cornwall.. Whilst its been wonderful - I miss France with a passion. Just come back from a 2 week holiday just driving around the whole of France and this has only cemented this feeling.. We want to move back to France (they never told me about the rain in Cornwall!!) but a little further south this time .. What is the general feeling about the sense of this with Brexit looming (although I can't help feeling still that it can never happen but maybe thats just wishful thinking)? Would it be madness? Would it be better to take a leap of faith and upticks pre 2019 or wait? I appreciate I am asking really daft questions here - but would love some feedback from you guys that are still there and enjoying the french lifestyle.. I bitterly regret moving back to the UK - lost loads of money in the process so this is probably the last 'roll of the dice' for us - my husband and I are both mid 60's and don't want to make (another) mistake.. I appreciate any comments. Many thanks. Cathy.
Hello thereMy husband and I are interested in buying a house in Laurens, Herault.However, I have just spotted some photos of really bad floods in Laurens. As the house in question is right in the centre by one of the rivers - don’t know the exact address- I am rather concerned.Any thoughts on this and the village in general, would be hugely appreciated.Thank you in advance.Sabine
