Hello one and all.  I have finally decided to put in new WOODEN double glazed WINDOWS.            My house is 300 years old, so style counts  (Sizes might not be conform with readymade). .Would appreciate names of the MOST RELIABLE companies, and if they do the installation   I'm in Cavaillon area;  Avignon would be ok but not Pontet. Many thanks for leads, Charlotte Novitz

Hello we are currently in UK looking to come to Riviera area next year 2016 for approx 4-5 months and were looking for somewhere to put our touring caravan. We don't need the facilities of a big site, a small private site or just a one off private property. We just need some where that we can have electric hook up, mains water supply and an "elsan" waiste disposal point. The site doesnt have to be in the middle of town or close to the beach, we have transport. The reason we need to stay for so long is that we are thinking of relocating to Riviera permenantly and starting our own business, but we need to be there for a few months to do research on how the business will go by networking with other English speaking ex-pats and also looking for possibly more permanent place to live. Any help and advice would be brilliant, oh yes and we are coming over for a short holiday this year 5-15th April so could meet up then if anyone would like to. Many thanks "Bikerbabe"

Hi,  I'm a fit middle-aged lady and I'm looking for a female (French or English speaking) casual  walking companion -  I live in the Cogolin/La Mole/Bormes area and enjoy walking - not huge long ones, but about 5 - 10 kms.  Ideal if free Monday - Friday during the daytime.  I know a few places locally but would love to learn some new routes.   Would love to hear from you if you have a similar  interest.

I thought I would reach out to the AngloInfo crew here because I know you're all so wonderful at sharing information and helping each other out!  We are housesitters and have spent 3 winters in The South of France looking after a fantastic property. We love the area and the people. Usually in the summer we travel a little more and look after Gites or holiday properties. This year we would love to stay in or around this area. We have excellent references, we love all pets but are not able to care for indoor cats (due to allergies), we have experience in gardening, large properties, pool maintence, mill houses, greeting guests, change overs, managing work-aways, all aspects of running a home and/or business. Our situation is slightly different because we run a business of our own so we would prefer an assignment that lasts from mid April - September (or longer). We do not charge for our services. There are three of us, all business partners, so we always take preference over large properties with 3 or more rooms. Other than a good wi-fi connection our only other requirement is that we work with nice people who understand and appreciate the value our services as much as we value and appreciate the opportunity to care for their home and pets.  We will consider all offers and are happy to visit and meet with anyone who might be interested. More than happy to sent links to our profile on all the major house sitting websites and share our references. Call: 05 62 65 36 71 or drop me an email: laura@commissioncrowd.com

Calling anyone who has a Toulon season ticket.... As you know, Toulon are playing Wasps in the QF of the European Cup. I have invited a number family and friends to come and stay with me and we have a hotel booked in Toulon for the Sunday night, however match tickets are only on sale to Season Ticket holders. If anyone is wiling to share their membership details with me so that I can buy some tickets, I would be extremely grateful, and will owe you a pint or three when it comes to match day. I only need your name and membership number and then I can buy tickets on line (I think) Thank you very much Mark

Please somebody help me!!   I can never get to my phone before it goes to voicemail as it only rings 3 and a bit times.  Have tried the Apple site, but their advice doesn't work which makes me think it is a matter of contacting Free.fr.   My French is not up to this, and I cannot make head nor tail of the website, so is there anyone out there who can help me please??!!      Thanks, Janiepie

We intend to spend some time in the summer in this area and we had heard that although the BBC satellite footprint had been reduced, it has lately improved.   Have you found that you can now receive the Free to Air channels or have you had to invest in a larger dish?   Any comments would be helpful..

We are just about to buy a property near Aix-en-Provence, which needs complete renovation. Despite speaking some French we find the technical vocabulary a challenge. Does anyone know of a reliable builder in the area who could help? Thank you.

I love my new ipad air, but how do I get it to connect with my iMac (2008 vintage)? I've ticked sharing, bluetooth etc. but they still don't connect. Plugging it into a spare usb slot only seems to charge it. I need to have files on the tablet so that I can take work into hospital with me this week! I'm sure it must be reatively simple, but it eludes this geek.
