  1. Hi,

    Follow this link to an article which we wrote last year concerning our experiences in setting for selling on a french market.

    www.thisfrenchlife.com/thisfrenchlife/2006/11/selling_on_a_fr.html

    Hope this gives you a better idea of some of the rules and regs- well those that apply in Haute-Vienne[:)]

    Good Luck.

  2. Hi,

    Best one I've heard.

    She asked me for a double-entendre, so, I gave her one!

    Cheers

  3. Hi,

     

    If you use the following link, this should allow you to browse and find your local AAPPMA site. This gives all rules and regulations pertaining to the various areas in France.

    http://www.pecheur.com/resultats-rub-pagine.asp?rub=122

    Or google aappma followed by your region.

    Incidentally, in the Haute Vienne you can now get a 1 day permit for just 8 euros that covers you for a wide range of rivers and lakes. Very useful for the Fair Weather AnglerSmile [:)]. I am not sure if this is nationwide yet.

    Most Tabacs sell the permits, or sometimes supermarkets, and tackle shops of course.

    Yours in sport,

    Tony

  4. Hi,

    Here is a link that explains "all things fishing" for the Limousin. I think it is pretty well nationwide as far as rules and regs go. http://www.frenchentree.com/france-limousin-fishing/DisplayArticle.asp?ID=5047. Indeed the fishing pages on the french entree site is full of other info and there is a forum just for anglers too.

    Hope this helps. Best regards,

  5. Hi,

    We are not far from you- Champagnac-La-Riviere. We got married in the village last year. It was very straightforward. We enquired at the Mairie and they gave us a booklet with all of the required paperwork that we had to get. A few cheques here and there and a bit of work on the "net"and we went back with all the various papers and Voila we picked a date with our Maire who was very flexible " Quand vous voulez"

    We had the civil ceremony at the Mairie which I believe is the law.

    Afterwards we went back to our house, with the horns blaring of course, and had a superb day.

    We wish you all the best for your forthcoming marriage.

    Hope this info helps,

    Best regards,

    If you need any documents translating please see our French property and life link, off the main page. You will find a direct e-mail link to the lady that we used in Limoges. Very quick too.

     

  6. Hi Tina,

    You may wish to visit this site http://www.frenchentree.com/france-limousin-fishing

    There is lots of information regarding fishing in the Limousin as a whole including licences etc. There is also a forum which I am sure if you posted a question there, answers would be forthcoming.

    We hope to specialise in flyfishing this year, so if you dad fancies a change?

    Best wishes and "Tight Lines " to your Dad.

  7. Hi Zeb,

    To be honest, I am not sure about Chronopost, could be something like Parcelforce in UK?. Sorry we cannot be more help on that one.

    Glad the other info was useful.

    Cheers,

  8. Hi,

    We sell on the internet to the French and had a simlar problem. Unlike UK, parcels seem to go on size as well as weight. If you packages can fit into a jiffy bag, with a depth of less than that of the french letter box, it is possible to use Lettre Post, if not there are various methods and costs for larger parcels. If you drop in to your La Poste and ask for Tarifs Colis ( parcels) and Tarifs Courrier ( most other things), you'll find all international rates inside the brochures.

    I have to say that sometimes services differ between La Poste's. Seems some staff know more than others about postal methods. Our french neighbours confirmed this.

    Hope this helps,

  9. Hi,

    We found www.holidaylets.net and www.holidayhavens.co.uk to be superb value for money. Our first year and we filled 11 weeks between the two. Good intro offers from both at the time . 3 months free AND you have full editorial control and free updates to your advert. Worked for us...........

    Bonne chance,

  10. Greetings fellow smokers( aka lepers).

  12. Hi,

    The only true free sites at the moment are as above. Thanks Arnold for your efforts for us all.

    We did find that www.holidayhavens.co.uk and www.holidaylets.net  offered 3 months free advertising on their sites. Easy interface to work with and almost full control over content and pictures.

    Between the two we had 10 weeks booked before we paid up for a full 12 months advertising. Both offered good service, fast response and we consider good value for money.

    Hope the info helps.

    We have no connection whatsoever with the companies mentioned other than being an advertiser with them, but if you contact them by all means mention the fact that we referred you. This helps everybody who has a website and helps us all find value for money.

    Best regards,

    Tony and Sue www.flyfishinginfrance.com


     

  13. Hi Steve,

    We found an english speaking accountant through www.pagesjaune.fr (Yellow pages) in Haute-Vienne If you search for "Comptable" in the area that you will be in, and try some of the larger firms that have websites.
    Hope this helps,

    Bonne chance.

  14. Hi,

    I don't know the site you mention, but if you are looking in depts 24,16,87 take a look at http://www.french-property-assets.com

    We bought through this company last year and they could not have been more helpful.

    Hope this helps,

    Best regards,

    Tony www.flyfishinginfrance.com

  15. Hi,

    We have advertised with a very well known site and got one booking....... so we looked around the web for alternatives.

    I can recommend www.holidaylets.net and www.holidayhavens.co.uk

    Both of these sites give you 3 months free trial and are a doddle to set up with text and pictures etc, giving you complete control.

    We have now taken out a years advertising with one and will shortly take out the same with the other. Between them we now have 5 weeks booked since May and plenty of enquiries. This more than covers the costs of the advertising.

    Hope this helps,

  16. Hi,

    You may like to have a look at http://www.frenchentree.com/france-limousin-fishing

    Although the site covers the Limousin, many anglers from other regions visit the site. It could be just the site to ask for club members. Although the entry requirements are a little tough.

    I've sent you a private message too as it could constitute advertising on LF site.

    Yours in sport,

  17. Hi,

    May be useful, I've just seen an advert in French Property News which could help.

    Take a look at www.canvasmobiles.com

    They offer mobile homes from £2995 and can deliver throughout France.

    We have no connection whatsoever, just quoting the web address.

    Bonne chance.

  18. Hi,

    We have found that Pagesjaune(yellowpages) have half decent very local forecast.

    http://www.pagesjaunes.fr/pj.cgi

    If you click Ville en Direct on the right hand column of the page and just follow the links for météo

    It is usually possible to get a forecast for your town/village.

    Cheers,

    from a very sunny ( as predicted) Champagnac-La-Riviére.

  19. Hi,

    If you have a look at this link it is a translation of the French rules etc for Haute-Vienne. Hope this helps. The licence is more costly than UK, however unlike UK there are no exclusive expensive club waters. This gives you access to more waters.

  20. Hi,

    We had heard of saturation gites etc so went down the route of specialist flyfishing holidays but with flexibility, thereby not excluding any non anglers. We aim to please fly anglers, house hunters and of course holiday makers who do not wish to fish at all. We have our own website.www.flyfishinginfrance.com. This is an invaluable and cost effective way of advertising as we have complete control over content etc. Being a qualified, registered and insured fly fishing instructor does help to promote our business. If you have skills or abilities that you can offer as well as accommodation I feel that this can only enhance your plans. Many people these days seem to be looking for some type of activity holiday.

    Bonne chance,

  21. Hi, we have been with Phonexpat.com since December.

    Outstanding service and prices.

    We call UK for a little over 2pence ( 3 cents) per minute.

    I am not sure of rates to Africa.

    Bills arrive monthly via a pdf adobe file by e-mail. We pay by direct debit.

    No complaints at all. We have no commercial link to Phonexpat.com so these comments are genuine.

    Bonne chance,

    Tony and Sue

  22. Just launched:

    http://www.frenchentree.com/france-limousin-fishing

    Please take a look and add your story/question.

    Junior section too with monthly prize for the best picture and story.

    Tight lines,

    Tony and Sue

  23. Hi,

    If you have alook at www.pagesjaune.fr, at the right hand side you will see a box with Villes etc, click this and you enter a four choice section with meteo as one choice. Selectable by post code.We find it reasonably accurate up to 4/5 days although it will go as far ahead as 10 days.

    Cheers,
