My French mother-in-law was widowed at the end of last year and is looking to find activities where she can meet people on a regular basis, classes, sports, music, anything really. The idea is really just to get out and meet new, friendly faces, any age group or nationality, male and female. She speaks a very small amount of English, is a young 53 year old and still works so it would have to be evenings or weekends. She lives near Avignon. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated :-) Thanks! Sophie

I have heard that houses in various areas of the South of France are sitting a lot longer? Are prices going down yet? Everyone talks about a correction in the market as prices doubled on the Cote in the last 7 years. Wondering what your opinions are? thanks viva la France!

Can anyone recommend a french private school in the Aix region? What sort of costs are involved? Is this much cheaper than the international schools?   JR

Hi, If you are a parent of a child or children aged 4-7, please carry on reading...... I am an undergraduate business and French student from the University of Brighton, England, and I have been studying at ESPEME, Nice since last September, and am currently carrying out my dissertation. I am looking into the differences in fast food advertising in the UK and France. I have written up a questionnaire, and sent it around a couple of schools in the UK, but I cannot seem to get any replies from French or English schools here in Nice or the surrounding area. I was relying on this to complete my dissertation research!! If you have a child aged 4-7, or know anyone that does, and would be interested in completing the questionnaire, I would be eternally grateful to you!! It should take no longer than 5 minutes of your time. If you could please do this for me, please email 'yes' to s.mellon@brighton.ac.uk, and i will send you the questionnaire. I have a copy of the questionnaire in English or French, so please state which one you would prefer, or I will automatically send the English one!! Thank you soooooo much in advance Sarah

Do we have an explanation to all these fires in Var taking place each year at the same period: Crime or just a Fag-end of cigarette lost in the middle of the forest by a kind tourist !!! Thanks for your comments, Best wishes, Louis

Hi, does anyone know how much the notaire fees are for a 3 year old property? I seem to remember reading that on houses under 5 years, the fees were slighly lower than the standard 8% or 9%? Thank you

Does anyone know if there is anything going on in the Var on Thursday? I am staying in Draguignan with some friends on Wednesday evening, is there anything happening in the Var which may be worth a visit on the Thursday? Merci Tim

I have been an avid follower of AngloInfo Riviera for some time even though I live in Languedoc so I wish AI Provence all success and look forward to a similar site here soon. Pudding
