  1. Hi,

    We can only speak from personal experience in Haute-Vienne, however we had our business registered in 2005 and last year wanted to add on a different facet.  A quick visit to the Chamber of Commerce and the new activity was added onto the Greffe certificate. I should point out this cost us 70,00 euros. We kept the same SIRET/SIREN number.

    Hope this helps.

    Best regards,



  2. Hi All,

    Just wondering if anybody has space in a van in the next few months coming from Chester to Haute Vienne ( 25 mins from Limoges airport).

    We have a settee, chair and pouffe that we would like bringing over. We would of course contribute to the costs of the trip thereby cutting their travel costs.

    Sizes are as follows.

    Settee Length 4 foot 7, width 3 foot 4, height 2 foot 10

    Chair Length 3 foot 2, width 3 foot 2, height 2 foot 10

    Pouffe 17 x 15 inches square.

    For further contact details, PM us or use the link below.

    Thanks in advance,


    Tony and Sue

  4. 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.


    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,




  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,

    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,

  8. 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


  9. 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
