Thanks. I did not realise it was worm treatment that they needed.

Best time to arrive at Eurotunnel with Pet?

by Jeanne • Tue 21 Feb 2017 14:06

Hi I don't usually travel with my dog but next month I am going to try it. Is there a good time to arrive when its quiet? Is it quite straightforward? I looked on the Eurotunnel website and it seems that they check their passport and scan for their chip, but was wondering if there are often a lot of...

What vaccinations do dogs need for the UK

by Jeanne • Fri 10 Feb 2017 09:01

Since living here I have never taken my dogs back to the UK for a holiday, but this year, as one of them is getting older, I will be taking her with us. Is it sufficient for them to just have the rabies vaccination up to date and to have the flea/tick treatment just before they go? Thanks. I am bein...

Re: Bored with the changes in the Creuse?

by Jeanne • Sat 26 Nov 2016 12:51

My question really was had anyone else noticed it, but it seems that people on here do not appear to go out much at all? I was not really talking about it being quiet but the way that the amount of social events have reduced in the Creuse. I think you can be rural but still have a life. Some of the ...

Bored with the changes in the Creuse?

by Jeanne • Sat 19 Nov 2016 19:23

For six years I have found life in the Creuse to be quite good, with a very active French social life, which did include a lot of travel to La Châtre and the surrounding areas, but during the past two years+; the social events seem to have been drying up considerably. Once upon a time the weekend's ...

Re: Travelling to the Creuse

by Jeanne • Sat 19 Nov 2016 19:13

We don't go back to the UK much these days, but like many others do the Rouen route. We have stopped off sometimes and I think we might make a habit of it now because we were certainly exhausted on coming back direct last week, despite staying at the Holiday Inn Express at Folkestone, which I would ...

Re: Chiggers

by Jeanne • Mon 31 Oct 2016 23:56

They have been prevalent this year. Everyone I know, even those who don't usually get bitten much, have been covered with them. Perhaps it was due to the extended hot summer we have had? Not restricted to this area either. I could not work out what was making these bites for a long time because havi...

Re: Property hunt in La Creuse. HELP!!!

by Jeanne • Fri 28 Oct 2016 18:25

Have you contacted any of the local estate agents? I know some are not too good but there are a couple of good ones, although I am not sure that they cover the particular area you mention. How is your French? I am trying desperately to think of the people not far from Lac Vassiviere who do an eco wo...

Re: Close encounter of the hairy kind!

by Jeanne • Sun 23 Oct 2016 20:57

Only had one encounter with a mum and her babies when going out for the evening and it was near the A20. They just ambled across the road calmly. Apparently if you ever get in to a situation with one I am told that if you can get up to beyond their eye level then you are OK as they can only see hori...

Re: Those who may be travelling to the ports from Monday

by Jeanne • Sun 23 Oct 2016 20:54

I very much doubt it. No Borders are already gathering; sending out messages to all their anarchist followers and the tear gas and violence is already in progress. The problem will be those not wanting to register so moving down the coast along the main routes. Shame they do not arrest these No Bord...

Those who may be travelling to the ports from Monday

by Jeanne • Sat 22 Oct 2016 10:39

For anyone who may be travelling up to Calais next week; from Monday they will be dismantling The Jungle and trouble is expected to be initiated by the trouble making organisation No Borders. There will be around 1,250 CRS there but not sure if that will be sufficient. Be careful on the route becaus...

Thanks Dave. That is one avenue I had not thought of. A French friend has offered to help if he can too.

Who to see if someone needs some serious financial help?

by Jeanne • Fri 30 Sep 2016 08:21

A friend of mine is in serious financial trouble as he is not earning enough to feed himself and is not retired. I speak reasonable French but when it comes to technical bureaucratic stuff its a bit different. Do you know if there is an English organisation or someone in these offices with an Englis...

Re: Stop Mines 23?

Stop Mines 23 are trying to stop them re-opening mines. They are trying to start up the ones near Gouzon, in particular the villages of Auge, Bord-Saint-Georges, Chambon-sur-Voueize, Lépaud, Lussat, Sannat and Tardes. The biggest problems being pollution of air, water etc and destruction of wildlife...

I like PUtin. I have several Russian friends and they think he is the best thing that has happened to Russia. A man of the people. What they don't like is the provocation of the US from Turkey. Prefer him to Obama. Feel sorry for the US, they really do not have any decent candidates. Clinton the war...

Re: Property prices in La Creuse???

by Jeanne • Sat 27 Aug 2016 16:41

Most sellers are trying to get a good price for their property but a lot of Brits who have done renovations are looking for the money back they spent, which of course in today's market is virtually impossible. Our French neighbour has put her house on the market for €80,000 but will be lucky to get ...

There is also a very interesting video which shows how this in fact does not help them. The country needs making safe and as it seems to hav...

Re: Unique (?) restaurant experience

Yes, I too would recommend it. Bea and Henri are excellent hosts and the food was very good. We had Sunday lunch there and it was followed by a classical music concert.

Re: Planning a visit to La Creuse for the first time.

by Jeanne • Sun 25 Oct 2015 17:25

I agree that the rugged landscapes can be found more towards Aubusson and Felletin, Crozant and Fresselines, and as Rictel said, the temperatures are definitely colder there in the winter and of course the snow is usually heavier. Personally I would pass on Guéret as it is the place to do shopping, ...
