Hi, all of you, be aware of the following : today, I got a recorded phone call advising me that my electricity consumption was already higher than last year same period and I had to call the following number to try to solve the problem : 0899961716. Very concerned, I called the number straight away, got a voice mail who seemed to come from the EDF company, was put on hold - but that is usual for everything...- , put the loud speaker of my phone on and, whilst doing other things, waited... 35 min before the telephone call got cut-off! I then decided to call my usual EDF line, did not wait as long as that, got an operator who confirmed that both my EDF readings were much lower than same period last year, so nothing to worry about. I told her about the recorded message I received and gave her the number I gave you, she said she already heard about that number and it was nothing to do with EDF... Fortunately, I had called from my land line, but if I had called from my mobile, I would have had an extremely unpleasant surprise on my next mobile phone bill!!! I hope this helps you not to fall into it as I did! BR, N.
Has anyone used this company or know of them and their reputation for letting of apartments/villas in Cannes for Congresses or summer? Is there a specific organisation in France to which rental agents must belong - and which can give a profile / history of rental companies? Likewise, can anyone give the specific accreditations and insurances that such companies must hold - which can be checked on? for peace of mind . . . Thanks for any advice.
Hello there, My husband (who is French) and I are looking to move back to the region with our 1 year old daughter in the next year or so. We moved to Normandy for his work, but we dream of moving back to the sunshine! Last time we lived in Antibes, but now we have become a family, we want somewhere less crowded and hectic, somewhere with a calmer atmosphere where we can bring up our daughter safely. We are beginning research now, and I would greatly appreciate any guidance from locals as to towns or villages that may be suitable. We obviously would like good schools nearby, and I would like to have no more than a half hour drive to the sea. Where is the nicest town for families on the Riviera? Thank you in advance for any advice and opinions. Jane
We have several double glazed units that need replacing. Trying to find a glazier thar will do the job is as rare as hens teeth.We have had one guy contact us and said the law in France states that you cannot just change one damaged unit you have to replace the whole French window.Is this just Bull Cr**p or is it factual ?

Has anyone had experience of trying to hire a mini excavator? I've a house in the Draguigan area (Var region) _ i've sent a few emails to hire companies but all have been ignored. I prefer emails - I'm better at writing French than trying to have a conversation with limited vocabulary. Any help would be welcome.
