We are going to install a TV in our holiday home and want to receive French TV.  I understand that we need to purchase a TNT box and need a viewing card.  Does this come with a box when we buy one, or do we have to get this separately and if so where from?  We already have a satellite installed so we only need to get the box and card.Thanks

Hi, we're thinking of putting in an offer on an old farmhouse (near Pamiers) but knowing nothing about French property we are thinking it might be wise to get a builder to look over it first?  I know there are official surveys the vendor is obliged to carry out, but never having bought a property in France before, we're not sure how much we can rely on them. Any thoughts?Also, any English speaking builder recommendations would be very welcome.CheersMike

Hi, we are an English couple who live in and manage a large house near Castelnaudary. We have holiday guests for a month in July/August and need to move out. We are seeking a small property to rent for a month or can provide caretaking or house sitting. I can provide a link to the website to our house so you can see the quality of the 8 bedroom house that we look after. We are practical people and are very used to managing high all levels of changeovers.Please contact me if you have anything suitable.

Hi We have a holiday home south of Perpignan and we are looking to replace the corner sofa in our living room.  I was hoping that you might have some suggestions in relation to stores to try when we are next out.  We are looking to buy a reasonably prices sofa say between €1500 - €2000.  From our initial look last year, the shops we tried seemed to be either very cheap or hughly expensive.  In terms of a british comparision we are looking for a Next sort of buy - reasonably priced, well made and comfortable.   Thanks Ruth

We are hoping to install a 5m above ground pool.We have had advice that if we put a cover on and take away the steps then we are covered for legalities...........we may want to let out the house. Our neighbour says that if we let out the house then we need to have a fence round the pool and an impenetrable fence round the garden.That doesn't make sense to me........does anyone have any good info?I would be very gratefulThanks
