Re: visas

With Brexit being so traumatic at the moment, we have been wondering if we will need visas, as it would completely mess up our French lives if we could only come for three months at a time with a three-months gap between visits. Could you tell us what is now involved in getting them, Virtdave? I tho...

Re: Journées du Patrimoine 2017

The guided tour season is over, and thus the exhibition has been taken down, but you can buy an illustrated booklet for 2 euros from a box beside the church in the centre of La Tour which gives all the background information. The "circuit medieval" around the village is clearly marked with yellow si...

Journées du Patrimoine 2017

by Annik • Fri 15 Sep 2017 20:46

Looking for somewhere unusual to visit during the Journees du Patrimoine this weekend? The commune of St Dizier la Tour, near Chenerailles, offers two gems: the historic site of Les Mottes Castrales de l'An Mil and the exquisite church of St Blaise and St Didier. The three feudal mottes dating back ...

Re: La Courtine military base?

by Annik • Mon 03 Apr 2017 11:25

A friend of ours bought house near Chicheix, South of Flayat. It was very peaceful and rural. Then the day she moved in there was a tank in the lane, which gave her rather a shock! She hadn't realised the extent of the La Courtine manoeuvres and of course no one had volunteered the information. Howe...

Re: Brittany Ferries - economie service

Thanks very much for your help. In the end we decided to go through the Tunnel again on the grounds that Euro 2016 has pushed the ferry prices (for the days we want to go) up by £100 one-way, not including the price of a cabin - and cabins are like hen's teeth. So it's back to Plan A but Plan B (and...

Brittany Ferries - economie service

by Annik • Fri 06 May 2016 11:44

Has anybody any experience of using the Brittany Ferries "economie" service from Portsmouth to Le Havre? For various reasons we need to come by ferry this time (early June) rather than via the Tunnel, and we want to bring the dog, of course. My husband suffers from seasickness and I wonder if the sm...

The blue and grey posters should have been everywhere, but I think many organisations involved in the Journées du Patrimoine at grassroots level think they are so gross each year (when they have different avante garde design described graphically by our association president as "moche" ) that they d...

Re: Confiture du vieux garcon

Unfortunately it looked really REALLY unappetising. I tried it in early 2013 and just left it. I must have another taste next time we go to France, maybe some extra time "maturing" may have helped. I was sad because it had been an interesting exercise and the alcohol was quite dear! I will report ba...
