Think the earliest I've seen is late February, so would imagine there will be plenty going over in March, assuming we don't get really hard weather.

Re: Car Hire

Hi Sally, I've never hired a car from Limoges airport myself but have heard people recommend Buggs Car Hire. I've looked at their site & it explains about the CDW in the FAQ section. Looks like a std excess , depending on size of car from € 1000, € 10 per day to reduce that by 75%, or € 18 per day t...

Re: Insert woodburner question

by rictel • Sun 07 Jan 2018 12:10

We got our bins a few weeks ago together with a pack which included a card to use at the dechetterie which i thought was...
