  14. Hi I think you will find it hard to find work As for the Pyrenees a good choice the best end is the west Pays Basque or Bearn the the East Aude and Pyrénées-Orientale is harsh and unfriendly The Dordogne and Correze are OK but to many swallows ie part timer Brits which piss off the local French I started of in 1996 with a few quid a house to renovate and as a back up job the possibility to be a relief coach driver for Euroline at Brive but for me it worked out well Renovate your full time home probably 2 years and 3 years later sell it at a profit do it again and again any spare cash pay voluntary into the UK pension system The best of luck

  20. Thank you for your replies interesting responses I hope when I die my requests in my will, will l take place I love France and its people especially the Basques but I wish that my are ashes are scattered at an old British Iron age fort where I made love to my wife many years ago and my fathers ashes remain
  21. I asked the question because so many people think France is brilliant, Its not I have lived here permanently since 1996 The winters are cold and the amount of time paperwork to do anything goes on and on Yes its a Great country but life is not that easy but no chance of me leaving happy to die here
  22. I have to admit the Aude valley on route to Perpignan or Andorra is geologically spectacular but its the poor decrepit villages on route most houses and shops are in decay I did enjoy visits to Carcassonne out of season
  23. I lived in 19 Correze close to the border Most of the Brits said they lived in 24 but although the villages looked the same, they were still both Crap The Brits are in 19 ,24 and 46 because the French could not find work in the 70's and left the areas they were poor areas hence cheap prices In the old days 1996, my first home was 24,000 ff for two houses and a hectare of land £24.000, how things have changed
