Complete France Forum

Suffolk Francophiles -

Recommended Posts

We are in the process of setting up a group of people in the Suffolk/North Essex/South Cambridgeshire area who own or are looking to own property in France.

We would envisage meetings about once every couple of months. These informal meetings would be to exchange ideas and information on all aspect of living in France and owning French property.

Other ideas we had were to get speakers in about subjects of interest eg conveying french property, french laws on letting property, french food and wines, aspects of building and renovations in France etc.

Another idea was the possibility of house swaps, in order to see other parts of France.

We are open to any other ideas that people may have.

If you are interested then please e-mail:

Karen Last at karen@lastword.plus.com

The first meeting will be on Monday 24th May 2004
probably in the Keddington area near Haverhill in Suffolk.

Born in Stowmarket, now living permanently in the Vendee since August last year - absolutely no regrets (well, perhaps a small tin of Heinz baked beans on toast would be nice now and again!).

We did lots of homework: Cost of living, cost for utilities, health care, car registration, through to house finding/purchasing/legislation process. It was quite an adventure and only some (thank heavens) small mistakes.

Regret cannot make your meeting but wish you all the luck - great idea to set up the group.

If I can help - shout - or email!
