Dear all, My partner and I have bought a house just outside St. Mathieu, but within Maisonnais sur Tardoire  to renovate as our second home. Could anyone advise us how we can find a couple of people to help with some heavy lifting? We have just arrived with various items of furniture etc and need to unload it within the next few days. Unfortunately my partner recently had to undergo major heart surgery & is not able to do all the heavy lifting he did in the past. We are happy to pay for such help, which probably would only take a couple of strong people about an hour to complete. This could lead to occassional odd hours of additional unskilled labouring work as renovation work progresses. If you know of anyone in the area, please message me ASAP at p.matter@btinternet.comMany thanks from Pam

Help ! Does anyone know anyone in 87 around Bellac, Limoges area who cleans range cookers, cookers and ovens ? Back in the UK there were several small businesses that specialised in cleaning domestic appliances. They would come to your home and do the job, efficiently and with no mess. We have a dual fuel range cooker and I try my best but it needs a professional ! I was given the name of one person, but she is no longer lives is area. So, please if you do it or know of someone who does, please get in touch, Thank you, Lesley M

Good morning,We live in 87130 and have a sunken 2500 litre propane gas tank in the garden, which I would like to get filled during the summer. It was installed by Totalgaz who have now apparently passed on that business to Alvea, however I cannot for the life of me find an Alvea depot in in the Limousin. Does anyone else have this issue, or know where I might source a supplier? Thanks in advance. Nick

our property was built 9 years ago. We now have mould on the kitchen walls. We had an agent who instructed a french builder. Who is liable to correct whatever is causing the problem? Are we still covered by the builders guarantee? It is not caused by the house being shut up in the winter

Hi, We had a carpet cleaned for us in a rental property at Bellac (87300) about a year ago - after asking on this forum. I guess it's a long shot - but we are having a change of tenant and wish to get it done again, but - you guessed it - we no longer have the guy's details! Anyone know of such a service in the area please?

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
