Hi, We recently sold our holiday apartment, Vine and Mountain in St Paul De Fenouillet. I just wanted to give a lot of credit where credit is due to the British Estate agent who sold it for us. If you are looking for a professional, helpful, bilingual, committed estate agent that will do exactly what you are paying him to do then this is your man !... I strongly recommend him and thank him for making the process painless. Tim Boldry Artaxa Immo SARL (Perpignan) +33 (0)6 73 16 86 81 tboldry@artaxa.com

I'm looking to have a roof terrace added to my house in Carcassonne in the near future. Has anyone on here had any work done, and could recommend somebody to me? I speak basic French, but if they speak English it would certainly be helpful Merry Christmas !

Hello, we are a British couple who have lived near Castelnaudary for 3 years. I am a designer/marketeer and my husband is a carpenter. We have managed a large house for the past 3 years. We are live in caretakers, have undertaken a lot of the renovation/decoration work and have also managed the holiday lettings/changeovers, maintain the pool and gardens. We are looking to take on a second house, either to manage for the holiday season, to carefake or to manage a renovation project. If you have a property that you need help with within 45mins of Castelnaudary, Aude, please contact me.

Apologies in advance, as I know that this subject has been discussed ad nauseam. I have been hanging on since a year last February to decide whether I should buy a bigger Satellite dish in order to access UK TV. The consensus of opinion seems to have shifted backward and forward - buy a bigger dish, use filmon, change my VPN, use a computer driven solution etc etc.. Some people who have installed larger sized Sat' dishes have found, after a period of time, that it hasn't been worthwhile, as the signal strength keeps changing, thereby wasting a few hundred euros. I've tried most options so far, but resisted the purchase of a larger dish (say a 110 cm). Can anyone tell me if it is the best solution or not - and what quality of picture they have received with this size dish?  For info: I live in Puisserguier (NW of Beziers...my Sat dish is about 80cm size, and very occasionally, we can pick up some of the free to air channels (bbc 1,2 Itv etc). Thanks

Hello Everyone   Here is one to get your teeth into. Quick version is I bought my house some thirteen years ago and basically had a satellite dish attached to a rising exterior wall above roof level and not visible from anywhere except maybe a hot air balloon or the like. At the time did not ask anyone's permission as I assumed because it was on my wall there was no need, I did though inform my neighbour whose house is attached to mine that the dish was up there. This information was met with a shrug. All good says I. New person (French) buys the neighbours house in 2006 and basically rents out rooms to seasonal workers. No problem so far.  Today, some 9 years after she buys she speaks, no! Shouts at me in the street because apparently according to her the dish is banned in France. The reason this has come about is she wishes to use a shared chimney to heat the house and has contacted her assurance because the chimney needs repairing. She has no access to the chimney from the inside and on climbing a ladder on top of two pallets and rotating your head through 360 degrees you can almost catch a glimpse of the dish before plummeting earthbound. She agrees the dish is on my wall but because the chimney serves both her and my house claims it must be removed because it is on her chimney. For some clarity I should mention that there is a chimney breast above my wall but the dish is not on this. After reassuring myself it wasn't April 1st I realised she was actually serious. Now to the point, I know it's a real long shot but has anyone EVER come across anything like this or in general does anyone know which authority could be contacted to resolve this? i would never normally post something like this but apart from the amusement aspect another question raises it head, what is the rational behind someone who complains about something that she had no knowledge of for 9 years and cannot see without the aide of a high wire. looking forward to comments.   many thanks Dave

HiI am desperately trying to enhance the soil in my heavy clay 'garrigue' garden, have resorted to raised beds/tubs for most planting. If you know of any sources of good topsoil or horse/chicken manure for sale at a reasonable price let me know. I am in the Corbieres , but have a large van and will go a long way for the sake of my garden!thanksChris
