  1. Hi everyone,

    my sanity is maybe for others to question ! However through circumstances I am to travel from Boulogne to Mussidan (Dordogne) this Easter Monday. I have two pictures floating in my head. Firstly one with open roads, empty because most of France is spending quality time with their loved ones at home and secondly a gridlocked motorway for all 500+ miles I will be travelling because that is allegedly what happens on bank holidays.

    Has anyone any experience of such journeys on an Easter Monday? If so I would be pleased to hear about it. Secondly any suggestions for making this journey as stress free as possible, I'm all ears.



  2. Hi all, I'm looking to take a Ford Transit (Long Wheel Base) to the Dordogne.

    Anyone have any  recommendations/experience regarding routes / costs etc.

    Thinking of taking a ferry to say, St Malo / Le Harve to reduce milage on the Van (but not essential)


  3. Hi,

    I've recently bought a house in France and it needs a complete rewire. Having obtained a quote or two the I have come to the conclusion that I am in the wrong job, in the wrong country. Such is life ! I have friends who are electricians in the UK who are prepared to consider taking on the job.

    Can anyone direct me to a website (in English please) which will spell out the necessary regulations that I will need to comply with to meet French standards.

    Many Thanks
