Good evening, I recently suffered a burglary and the front door needs to be completely repaired. But the insurance only covers damages up to 1500 euros, while the estimate for the repair of the door amounts to over 2500 euros. Do you know if it is possible to decline this quote and provide a cheaper one to insurance to cover the cost of repairing the door?

Hi, I'm new in Paris and dying to buy some Parisian fashion (on a budget!). I have no idea where to shop and have looked at the major places like Bon Marche, Monoprix, and Galleries Lafayette. Any ideas on where to go? Any help is appreciated!

Hi, Does anyone have experience of using carers in Paris? My disabled friend with MS is unable to find carers who actually care: she has tried many different agencies, always with the same poor results, meaning that she is now receiving shockingly poor care, tantamount to neglect. She needs people who just do their jobs properly and with a modicum of care, but this seems to be impossible. If anyone can recommend someone they've used, or even if you know whether there's a watchdog organisation for care providers, I'd be really interested. Thank you!

Hi everybody.As i was watching recent Vanlife videos on youtube i wonder if thats possible in France. So there is a bunch of questions that i am looking to get answers for:       -----  All i am talking about is converting a simple Van "box" into a full living house. -----1. Can i own as a simple citizen a big Van (like a long and tall sprinter)..? 2. Is it allowed to self convert a Van?3. Are there any regulations for converting a Van into a Camper? Should i re-register the vehicle adding on paper a new type of vehicle like "caravan"?4. For how long could i travel out of France without ..registering my vehicle to another country? ..or getting a fine??If anyone has knowledge or experience on DIY Van conversions and policys in Europe could be very helpful too!Thank you!

Access to line 4 of the metro is closed at the Gare du Nord; best to just walk to the Gare de l'Est and take 4 from there. Line 5 is currently very busy from the Gare du Nord - expecially at rush hour!

I’m renting a studio (hlm) top floor (4) on a landing of 4 , two  two apartments and two studios, my interior wall is the neighbors also and the level of noise at night is over the top and can continue past 1am , I’ve done the usual things and the recorded letters and nothing gets done. On my most recent visit to the houseing office they told me I should call the police each time, tapage nocturnal, and they have to hear and decide if it’s loud and there’s always a possibility that by the time they arrive it’s calm and I could be prosecuted. So can anyone share any similar experiences and they got resolved.

Due to these new regulations in Paris on short term rentals, what is the actual status now? How strictly is it enforced and what are the penalties? I rent in Paris - and also am in the process of buying an apartment and am considering renting it or having part of the apartment rented out when I am not in Paris. I will be grateful for any suggestions from home owners. Thanks!

Need advice. My 6 year old has asked santa for a skylander figure, it is not too expensive but sold out everywhere(Ireland & UK). Well I have managed to buy one on ebay.com, but they wont ship to Ireland /uk. So I tried to talk him out of asking for it but he just says Santa will make it happen. I have family in Paris so I managed to ask seller to send it there now. It wont arrive till 21/22 Dec. Now I'm wondering how do I get it from Paris to Ireland in time for the big visit....Help

As of 23:00 this evening evening, the rue Royale running from the Concorde to the Madeleine will be pedestrianized and no vehicles will be able to use the Champs Elysées as of tomorrow morning. Unless you are a fan and wish to take part in this event, it would be best to avoid the area as hundreds of thousands of mourners are expected to take part.
