Went to our postbox to check it the other day and found a package inside that was roughly a 100mm cube - way too big to get through the envelope slot on the front!So, do La Poste have a master key that fits all post boxes or do all post boxes have the same key and we just don't realise it?Intriguing......

I know this is a long shot but is anyone interested in swapping a property in the Aude area for a property in Brittany.  We visit Portugal on a regular basis so we would like to live closer to the Spanish border.  Our house isn't being marketed at the moment so it would need to be valued but I imagine it would be 120K - 150K. Our house is in the country a 3 bed detached with a large garden.  Our main requirements would be 2 beds minimum with easy maintainable outside space and parking.  Full details and photos will be supplied anyone seriously interested.

Hello - Does anyone have any up-to-date information on taxi fares charged from a) Montpellier airport to Montpellier train station and b) Beziers/Agde airport to Beziers train station? I am trying to decide on the cheapest option for flying next time. Yesterday I was charged €28 for the ride at Montpellier, and I think that was much higher than last time I did the trip. If Beziers is cheaper, I might switch to flying there. Any info gratefully received.

I'm moving to Clermont l'herault mid May and wonder if there are any English speaking communities I can get in touch with pr someone who wants to learn/improve English and I can improve my French, or someone who needs a secretary or I can work from home and do copy typing etc.  I have some French but need time to learn conversation.  This move was a year earlier than planned!

Can anybody offer me some advice when filling in my french tax.I have paid a person to do my tax for 6 years and as my income is straightforward I am sure with some guidance I could do this myself.I receive a UK state pension and a teachers .I pay income tax on my teachers pension in the UK. Do I have to declare my gross net and income tax paid?.I was only ever asked for one figure when it was done by the person doing my tax.On average my total increase each year is about £120.00 between the two pensions,but the bills I get from the tax office does not seem to match this increase.For example the tax bills over the last 4 years are 120 euros , 331 euros 63 euros and 383 euros.Why does this vary so much .I know the person doing my tax has been converting sterling to euro  1.3768 = 72.6p . The exchange rate has not been that low for sometime now .Does anybody know what rate is being used this year. I would be grateful for any help.

Moving up to Normandy. I'm going to rent a big/Luton van but before I do spend money I have a UK reg Terrano 2 4x4 which is in excellent running order (everything works well) but has rust issues and needs bodywork work for its CT. I use it in the forest for wood harvesting. Dont need it up north. If someone has a large van with a towbar to pull a 2 meter box trailer...they could lend me for a few days in exchange for the Terrano please let me know.thanks for reading

We have a property in Brittany but would like to return to the Carcassonne or Limoux areas, within 40km.  We are looking to rent somewhere with a garden for our dogs.  We are currently renting in Spain to escape the Brittany winter!  But due to leave here in June or could be sooner if suitable property found.  Rental around 500 euros a month.  We are a retired professional couple and can supply references.
