Hi!   My name is Aurora, I am currently living in the Netherlands but I am trying ever so hard to move to Aubagne or Marseille. I was hoping to find friends on here to talk tho (via Whatssapp messenger, skype or whatever). Maybe to help me move (tips an tricks). I would love to learn to speak better french with someone and in return I could help you with either english or dutch ( I also speak German).  It is my dream to move to either marseille or aubagne but I just cant seem to find a job because I barely speak enough english to get to a hotel.. any help or contact is welcome!    Thanks for everyone who wants to help me!

The secondary school that our daughter will go to next year has refused to offer a vegetarian option for her at their canteen.  An internet petition has recently been launched by MP Yves Jego, mayor of Chalon-sur-Saône, to campaign for the right to a vegetarian school dinner option. The petition has already gained 130 000 signatures out of a desired 150 000. If you feel in agreement, please would you sign the petition and then share the link on your social media networks.  https://www.change.org/p/pour-une-alternative-v%C3%A9g%C3%A9tarienne-obligatoire-dans-les-cantines-scolaires

I am moving to France next year and wondered if anyone can give me an idea of the likely cost of removals.  Moving from Manchester to Draguingnan. We are a two person household and live in a 4 bed roomed house with lounge and dining room and a cellar and shed.  We want to use a good established removal Company who has good dry storage Facillities and proper insurances. We will most likely need our contents to be stored for a few months whilst we buy another house.

This afternoon I caught a brief sight of a vibrant royal blue bird about the size of a great tit near water but I have no idea what type of bird it was. This was the first sighting since my arrival to France in 1999. Does anyone have any idea what breed it is. Thanks, Maggie

We've started a group for writers in France, open to all - fiction, non-fiction, plays, poetry. It's strictly non-commercial - just a way of creating a community to provide mutual support and encouragement. We've just created a forum, so come over to Writers in France to get the conversation going.

The company website only provide a 4 digit number (1033) which appears to be unobtainable from the UK using the normal 0033 international  prefix..Can anyone advise if there is a way of accessing this type of number from UK?

Hi everyone! I will be visiting the Var mainly the Cotignac area in the late spring and really would love to meet up with some local english people who have been living in the area, particularly those with young children. We are thinking of moving to Cotignac in 2015 and will be bringing our daughter and husband and three small children and are very excited.. Our trip is one of many we have done over the past year in deciding where we want to finally put down roots, and are very keen to meet up with people to find out more about life in general in the Var area and in particular in Cotignac! If anyone is able to meet up with us for coffee that would be fantastic!  We will be renting in the village...Look forward to hearing from you... Philippa

Hi, I've just got a job in Nice and need to move to the area asap. However I'm having trouble finding something as I have a 2 month trial period and estate agents won't touch me with a bargepole, something to so with Assurance Loyer Impayé.  So does anyone know of a 2 bedroom property available as close to the centre of Nice as possible? I am looking either for a 2 - 3 month rental just to take me through my trial period or if the flat is suitable, a long term rental. Any help or advice would be appreciated, I'm pulling my hair out here. I'm solvent and a homeowner myself. Thanks
