Hi All,The French Government has announced the introduction of a requirement to have the 'Health Pass' for access to many businesses, with Restaurants and Bars specifically mentioned. The fines and penalties for those who break the law are steep, and even higher for the business owners than the customers.I have a rental apartment in Antibes and a guest is arriving on August 1st from outside France. I'm trying to find out if the requirement to view a 'Pass Sanitaire' is also required of holiday rentals owners? If my guest does not have a Pass Sanitaire - am I to be held liable for hosting him?
Dear all, what do you think about the Golfe Juan deviation, ex RN7 and status of road work ? Will it be beneficial to the village or attract even more traffic?We are about to buy a house in Golfe Juan not far from the new route and the broker is of the opinion the deviation will be beneficial for Golfe Juan and the area.
Could anyone please tell me if it is legal to carry pepper spray or mace in France and where one would buy it? I have several friends (all female) who have been mugged recently and others that are feeling a little threatened. I am sure it is just the time of year... lots of tourists and easy pickings for criminals. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! It wouldn't hurt for everyone to be a bit more vigilent too I guess! Thanks... Daisy

Im hoping that there is someone out there with a sensible answer to the following.Our French friend is in the process of selling her house. Her husband died 2 yrs ago. He had 3 children by a previous marriage, 2 sons and a dahghter. Unfortunately the daughter died and left 2 childrenThey both married late in life and had no children. He was 82 when he passed away and she has just reached 80.My question is what percentage will she get under French inheritance law and what will the children of her former spouse be entitled tooToday she dropped a bomb shell saying had sold the property for less tha she was asking. She also stated that if she did not sell before her next birthday (81yrs) she would have to pay an extra €25000 to the children ( wether this to each child or in total we don't know) Is this true and can such a thing be correct

Hi everyone,My fiancé just got offered a job in Grasse and we are trying to decide where to live. The reasons we don't want to stay in Grasse itself is 1) i've heard it's not the nicest or safest depending on where (not sure if this is really the case), 2) i love the beach and antibes so would like to be able to go there easily 3) i most likely will be going to a sports place often in Vallauris.We both love the countryside/greenery and would prefer to stay out of the city centre of antibes where you pay $$$ for a tiny studio/apartment, but would still like easy-ish access to it (via public transport preferably). Where would you recommend between Antibes/Grasse?Thanks!
