  1. Am urgently seeking for long-term lease, in the Mirambeau area, a two-bedroom house with garage/parking & terrace/garden if at all possible. Rural/semi-rural preferred. Thank you.
  2. Thank you everyone for your feedback. It IS tough trying to do this from abroad...

    My parents moved rather suddenly, in their late seventies, from Canada to France, in order to be closer to my brother, who lives in France but doesn't help, and to myself in the Middle East.

    Their language skills extended to Spanish but not to French and my dad often will use a Spanish word for something. Sometimes he gets lucky as the word will be similar in French.

    Anyway, I will have a look at this other website and see what they have to say :) Thank you very much for the lead.

  3. I am posting this both here and in the Poitou-Charente section as I very much hope to trigger some response.

    I live in the UAE and my dad (89) has been coping fairly well since my mother passed away 5 yrs ago. However he is becoming frail and he recognizes that he will soon need assistance but he does not speak French.

    We have been looking for English-speaking/bilingual residences for 2 years now and have only come across the new home at Mouans-Sartoux, which, unfortunately, is too costly for us.

    We are looking at the Charente Maritime area as I will be retiring there in a few years.

    Would anyone have any suggestions as to how we may tackle this problem?

    Thanks,
