Hi. I've got my apartment in Lyon and it is all ready to be rented out. I would like to rent it out to holiday makers on a short-term basis and I'm looking for a management company to list it with. They would need to do everything including meet and greet and laundry and any problem solving as I am living in the UK for a while. The one company I've approached so far provide a good service as I've stayed in one of their apartments before but I'm not overly enthusiastic with their terms and conditions as they include a lot of excessive fees that I would need to pay them before they take on the property. Could you pied a terre owners out there make any recommendations? Thanks for any help!

I'm travelling to Lyon for the Lyon A la Carte Expat Fair (advertised at the top of this page). It is being held in the Hilton, 70 Quai Charles de Gaulle.. Rooms are 300 euros + per night. Can anyone recommend a cheaper hotel, pref walking distance please? I don't mind around 100 to 120 euros for a business trip, but 300 is hors de question!

Hi everyone, I am looking to relocate to the Lyon/St. Etienne area as that is where my wife is from. Currently living/working down in the south of France. Does anyone know a good website / resource to look for positions with international or American companies? Or any IT jobs. My French is workable but it's not really my 'strength'. Right now I'm using sites like INDEED.fr but not getting much in the 42/69 departments. Thanks in advance!Daniel

I am just testing the water. I was thinking of buying a refrigerated van to bring chilled/ frozen foods over from the Uk. I know there are loads of people who bring foods over but how many actually do chilled or frozen food over from iceland, Tesco's or even asda. I would do stops at most big towns or city's between Tarbes and the ferry port. Let me have your thoughts on the matter. Del

I left the UK at 18 and moved to Spain, after eight years I moved to France, and seven years later I find myself in Italy! I'm just a bit of an aimless nomad, but I'm always curious to hear other peoples' stories.So, how did you end up in Lyon?! What are your likes and dislikes about your ex-pat life?

Thanks for all you answers on my last question. My latest question is... The question of do you have a TV. Do you tick the box if you have a TV or do you tick it if you haven't got a TV? Thanks.

Thank you so much for your support Amazon addict and the many others who have emailed us. I am pleased to report things are now going very well for WAIFS 2010 and all the emails received and answered each day by the team. Having had a long weekend break to contend with the team got down to coordinating the women with the most pressing problems and they have now been dealt with. Meetings this week have taken place and our Avocat Maitre Camus is preparing a lot of really useful, clear information for everyone who is interested. Dr B has already put some items on the site and as you will see there have been lots of words of support like yours which is most gratefully received. A meeting with the Consiel General was very interesting and now the details given to us are being prepared for the site and the lady who we deal with said in fact nothing like this has ever been done and she is delighted as she for one cannot speak English and does not her self know all the things that are available throughout France only what she can offer in her offices jurisdiction and dept. She was genuinely thrilled that someone was getting things done and is determined to keep us feed when things change or new things are on offer. There is now an email address for anyone who has a problem or would like to know something as yet not on the site or to offer help. Once again thanks you everyone who has offered help and who needs it, rest assured we are doing our best to get things on the site but nothing is going on until it is checked and we are sure it is useful and accurate and there are a lot of exciting things planned soon so keep your eyes on the site www.wordpress. com WAIFS 2010 and if you wish to contact the team the email address is waifs2010@gmail.com
