The thing is that we dont always come for a week and we would like to come more often for long weekends etc. On average its about £30 a day for a car and so it seems really good when we can get a return flight for 2 from liverpool for £40 from fri to mon but then add £120 pounds on to that and its a...

This may sound crazy, but if the question is never asked, I will never know the answer. Why has no one ever thought about running a local car share/rent scheme in the Creuse area. In my utopian vision, someone who is resident could manage such a scheme, where a group of people could get together to ...

Hi I have a bank account with Bank Tarneaud in France and use it to pay bills etc. The questions I have is, would it be better to transfer all our holiday cash to that account straight from our English one, or would it be better to change the cash first and just pay it in when we get there. I really...

Hi All I am not very techno savvy, but know that someone out there will know the answer to this. I have an internet dongle, that means I can use my laptop on the move, but it is only useful in the UK and does not work in France. Do you know if it is possible to buy the same thing in France, so that ...

its true. I can't believe it myself but i just booked 2 return flights with ryanair liverpool to limoges for 4p. Yes really - the only charge was to pay by card. Car hire for the week was so cheap too - i could spend more in a week at home. Creuse here we come - whatever the weather!!!

well. I have been SPANC ed and yes he did hand over a bunch of forms. He was a lovely guy with a snazy p.c. He asked question, looked at our existing one and told us t was installed in 70's but did not conform. He gave us good advice on what we needed to get and said we could do it ourselves or get ...

I read with interest all these posts and I am expecting a vsist from the SPANC man at the end of the month. We have what appears to be 2 very large brick built tanks in our cellar with sand and stone in them. One filters into the other through a grey pipe an then god knows what happens to it. I do n...

Just a note to everyone who takes a pet on holiday with them, not to become to relaxed about living in the countryside. The roads are so quiet and a lot of houses have land around them and it is easy to think the danger for pets is small. This summer we were devastated to loose our dog in a road acc...

Hey Brian Thanks for the info but after a huge storm we did not manage to get it up and running again. We really need a less fragile position for it and some techno savvy would help too. We got the message via Paul, and thanks for the help. Had a wonderful break but sadly lost our dog in a road acci...
