I understand that we need to burn wood of a certain age. What is the best age to buy and how do we tell if it's good or bad. The last load we had delivered is definitely not burning well and I'd like to avoid the problem again. Can anyone recommend a good wood supplier in the Haute Var - near Tourtour.

Anyone have any recommendations - near Salernes. He's at the local school having done a year at the Maternelle. I'm concerned that he's struggling, could do with some help from a fun person able to communicate well with children.

As you are well aware every pool needs a security system of some kind. My neigbour, who just spend six to eight weeks a year had their alarm installed a couple of days ago. And for that matter, a couple of days too late. Their pool is just 25 meters away from our bedroom and that's were the problem arises. This alarm goes of four or fine times a day (and night) becuase of animals? or wind? I have woken up twice the last couple of nights because of this and my neighbour sits in Switzerland not knowing. What should I do? Go to the police? Or the Mairie or what? I cannot wait until my neighbour arrives for Easter!!!!!   fluffy

Can anyone tell me what they think of Meyrargues as a village to live in? Would it be feasible to commute into Aix every morning without too much traffic? Are there other internationals living there? Is it a "dynamic" village with activities? Does it get noise from nearby routes? Jennifer

Has anyone heard of any tax advantages of selling a property for under 300k euros? I've inherited part of a property and the person with the largest share of the house is saying this is the case. Can anyone recommend a good lawyer?
