Hi, i currently have a bridging loan on my house which is due to expire next year after the 2 year period. Does anyone know if the French banks are keen to extend bridging loans? I know in the UK they would welcome you with open arms, but i know the French lending system is very different. Thanks.
Just wondered if anyone of non-pensionable age had investigated how (in later life) we get to claim the English bit of our pensions? I'm now working in France but had a private pension in the UK where I contracted out of Serps. Should I contract back into Serps? Will they let me now I'm living here? What age does the French pension kick in? Also, anyone used a financial advisor to sort this out? Recommendations? Thanks all, Susie Q
I am moving to Toulon from Canada in a month. I would love to get my nails done with gel overlay before I leave North America but I dont know if there are salons in Toulon that would be able to do the upkeep. Do any of you know if there are nail salons that use gel nails anywhere in Provence? Thanks :)
We are moving down to a village near Aix later this year - anyone have any recommendations for removal companies. Don't need any packing or storage just collection and delivery. Anyone any advice on how much this should cost? All advice gratefully received. Thanks - and isn't this a great site?! Wills
If anyone has trouble with moths in the food cupboard, you can buy "traps" at Amazon, link below:http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/search-handle-form/002-7380389-3203209We have been having a real probelm with these horrible creatures, not for the first time I might add, so I did a Google search and there were 16,000 pages about them! Seems like France is not the only country to suffer from them. The awful thing is that they can already be in food that one buys.Even the supposedly "airtight" containers I bought did not work. My "other half" brought me some lovely spaghetti bolognese the other day when I was ill in bed but my appetite fled when I saw a moth larvae on the side of the plate. Apparently it had dropped from the kitchen ceiling" Yuck! When I want protein I'll choose it myself, thank you very much.I'm going to send off for these traps and see if they work.spiritofangels
We are Americans and have moved to the Isle Sur La Sorgue area recently. My children would like to meet other kids in the area to play with. They need not speak english but some would help as they speak very little French. They are 8,6 and 4. Please email me if your interested. Thank you, Andrew
