  1. Hi Tracy, Well done, brave move. If you would like to read our "Story so far" please visit the link below, or copy and paste into your browser. http://www.flyfishinginfrance.com/storysofar.htm Bonne chance, Tony and Sue
  2. 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  
  3. 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. Tony www.flyfishinginfrance.com
  4. 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
  5. Hi Ronni, We are in Haute Vienne, so couldn't help, but just wanted to say what a generous posting. Glad you are full. Best regards, Tony and Sue www.flyfishinginfrance.com    
  6. 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,   Tony www.flyfishinginfrance.com  
  7. 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, Tony www.flyfishinginfrance.com
  8. 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. Tony and Sue www.flyfishinginfrance.com  
  9. 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.   Tony and Sue    
  10. 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. http://www.frenchentree.com/france-limousin-fishing/DisplayArticle.asp?ID=5047 Tight Lines, Tony and Sue www.flyfishinginfrance.com  
  11. 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,   Tony and Sue
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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,   Tony and Sue
  15. To all who have taken the time to reply. Many thanks for all of your information.   KInd regards,   Tony and Sue  
  16. Hi, We are about to register our gite as a business. There are only two of us and our cat, small outgoings so no need or desire for large income from gite. Any ideas as to whether we would be better as Micro enterprise or E.I.? Any sites featuring relevant information would be appreciated or contacts for specialists in the field. Thanks in advance, Tony and Sue  
  17. Hi, we are just at the beginnings of starting our small business in dept 87 and would be grateful for any advice as to finding an accountant (preferably who speaks a little english) in the region. The business will be based around accommodation and perhaps internet sales. From what I hear and read on the forum, a Microenterprise would seem the way to go? Thanks in advance for any help or recommendations. Regards,   Tony & Sue
  18. Many thanks to all for your advice and experiences. We are now weighing up the possibility of an electric chauffe eau. It would be a real nuisance to install a butane one and THEN realise that there was insufficient flow to feed the system. I had read that the electric ones are more expensive to run. Anybody know for sure?   Thanks in advance,   Tony & Sue
  19. Hi, Does anybody know if you can buy a Wall mounted Chauffe eau which will run on bottled butane and DOESN'T need a flue or conduit? We thought we saw one in Mr Bricolage recently but were not sure. We need one that will supply a sink and shower at the same time. All answers gratefully received, thanks.   Tony & Sue
  20. Hi, Thanks to you all for the invaluable information. Should we find a reliable and reasonable priced ramoneur( May try and source rocking horse droppings instead) we will let you all know. Thanks again and best regards, Tony & Sue
  21. Hi, we are looking for a ramoneur ( Chimney Sweep) near to Chalus 87.We live in Champagnac La Riviere(about 10 mins away) Ideally we need the flues and chimneys sweeping and checking before a) lighting the insert and b) fitting a new Godin log burner. Any recommendations gratefully received.Thanks very much.   Tony & Sue
