The best place on the Earth to stay is Italy. My sunny Italy. Would you like to live near the sea? There are lots of villas on sale.

Hope you don't mind a Brittany member posting for info on here.As said we live in France but are travelling to Italy at the end of the month for a holiday. Have been trying to find out information on whether we will need adaptors for the electrical items we are taking, laptop ,camera, chargers etc.Some of our items have the flat 2-pinned plugs and others have the round plugs with 2 pins and a hole for the earth contact pin which is on the wall socket.Have been searching online but seem to be getting conflicting info as whether we need adaptors. Are we right in thinking that there are round sockets AND flat 3 pin sockets? Some sites suggest that these will be OK in Italian sockets but others say we will definitely need adaptors - very confusingWanted to try and sort this out before we get there as we don't want to waste valuable holiday tine searching for an adaptor.Many thanksKaren

Can anyone shed any light on who should have the responsibility for maintenance of the bars on the balcony of our apartment, they are looking very old and not very secure. Is that down to us as tenants or the landlord to sort does anyone knows. thanks

thinking ahead here and hoping to get a bargain in the sales. How many fixed wall air con units do you reckon I would need for a 90 m apartment with 2 bedrooms and a lounge? Money is an issue so I want to keep to the minimum possible thanks for any advice

any idea if it is easy to return items to Ikea? I want to get a sofa cover but the model sofa I have is no longer being sold there. There is one that looks very similar but if it doesnt fit after I buy it I would want to exchange it. Is this likely to be possible anyone know?

Does anyone know any auction houses or shops selling good second hand / designer/ antique furniture anywhere near Milan? Surely not everyone want IKEA?
