Hi, has anyone taken out one of the EDF/GDF loans to install heating/insulation/double glazing etc.? If you have, did you have to supply quotes as part of the application, or are there specific tradesmen you are expected to use? I am trying to make sense of the website, but my French isn't really good enough and I can't find any information in English anywhere. Thanks in advance

Hi, am going to be moving to Peyrelevade, near Lac du Vassiviere, and will need to install a new wood burning stove. Was thinking of buying 2nd hand in the UK and taking it with me, but would want it installed properly. Anyone know anyone that covers that area? Also, wheyher it is worth getting one with a back boiler for water/radiators or if it would be better to get oil-fired or electric central heating? No gas in the house. Would be grateful if anyone has any recommendations thank you

Hi, I've owned my house for 12 years and the plan is to retire there in about 18 months. I'm trying to make preparations now, but because my house has been a holiday home, it's difficult to calculate running costs. I have yet to buy a cooker and most people I know ( which isn't many) use butane. I'm trying to find out which is the cheapest form of cooking. Propane, butane or electricity? I live alone, so I'm not feeding a family

Hi, we’ve just bought a house in limousin. When we viewed and started the process 3 months ago there was a tidy  bamboo area not too big. We have now returned and it’s gone crazy. Any tips on how to remove it ? Any gardeners with knowledge of bamboo and possibly a digger that you can recommend ? Many thanks in advancesuzette

Hi, we are doing up our house just outside Magnac Laval. However we need to get hold of some plasterboard. We live in England at the moment but want to have some delivered to our property. Does anyone know if any companies offer this. Most seem to charge hundreds of euros! Is there a way around this? Many Thanks

Hello, can anybody recommend a good local tree surgeon? I've got a couple of risky trees i'd like chopped (one leaning towards the house). I'm located between St.Germain and Uzerche (87380).Thanks!

We need to find a nice big trailer full of well rotted horse manure. So if you live with a 15 mile radius or so of Chamberet and have some, then do please get in touch, we will of course collect and load, may well leave you a nice bottle of something too.

We had a pipe burst in the ceiling between the ground and first floor, our agent at Allianz in Eymoutiers did, and is still doing nothing to help us in this Emergency situation.Does anyone know a good plumber whom they have actually had experience using - it will not be a simple job and we need help as soon as possible.

Hi I’m just wondering whether people using an electric water balon could offer me some advice. We use an electric water heater so heat our hot water. Do you think using a timer so that it switches off over night would actually save money. My theory is that if I switched it off from 10pm to 6am in effect I’d not be heating water for quite a few hours but not sure whether heating the water each morning from much cooler is a false economy than leaving it ticking over. Has anybody tried to see if it makes a difference. Thanks

Hi all, looking at moving to the limousine area. We appreciate some areas will be colder than others mainly due to the altitude of the house where you live. We like creuse but would like to know if anyone in this area finds that wood burners do or don't provide enough heat to be comfortable. Regardss lance

Hi,I'm hoping someone can help or advise. We've had a complete nightmare with our pool builders. The project has dragged on for over a year now and we've had problem after problem. Just getting them there to do the work has been challenging enough (they come for a few hours one day and disappear for 2 weeks) but we've got bowing walls, a leak, an un level pool and just lots of generally poor workmanship. We are still due 2 payments on the project, a large one and a small one for end snagging. So far we've refused to release any more money as we feel the costs to rectify the problems will amount to far more than the snagging, as well as being extremely dissatisfied by the end product. The pool is usable despite the leak so theoretically it is close to finished. It looks a real bodge job though.We have tried to deal with the amicably and have tried to work out a way to get the pool we want and thought we were getting. But now they are threatening to go to the Hussiers de Justice to recover the outstanding money so won't turn up again until that money is paid...Does anyone have any advice as to our next steps? We are a bit at a loss as we obviously want a finished (decent enough) and functioning pool.Hope someone can help.regards,
