Dog walkers beware

To all dog walkers in rural areas please beware of traps. The hunt season may be over but the chasse may still have authorisation to set traps for fox, fouine and ragondan. Our dog was caught in one today and apart from a very sore foot for her, a sore hand for my husband and a combined vet/doctors bill of over 70€ all is well. It could have been so much worse.I have visited the Mairie but these traps are legal and had been authorised to be set in the commune. I will be requesting signage so we…See More

"Have just had an update on next years Pussifolies, will be on June 9th.  There will be 30 4x2 mtr canvases painted on the day, shadow puppeteers, a magician and lots of other bits.  Would really recomend it if you are close enough for a…"

"I do juice - but what a fab idea to do a weekly session and then freeze it - you are a genius!  I don't have a real juicer, but the centrifugal addition to my Magimix, so again only 5 parts to wash and a decent motor to power it!…"

Village art

Posted on August 29, 2012 at 14:49 7 Comments

We were out and about yesterday, on a 41km bike ride in the Marais-Poitevin, and spotted this funny little chap stood to attention outside a village mairie.  He really got me thinking - why is he there and why does water pour from every possible orifice?  I have…

French customer service

Posted on August 4, 2012 at 22:00 8 Comments

It’s August and France is on holiday.  We have been warned not to travel on major roads this weekend as the big exodus out of the cities takes place and shops, businesses, even restaurants are closed for their ‘congés annuels’.  We all know anything official takes…

Mini Cooper Road Trip Day 8, back home

Posted on May 7, 2012 at 9:05 2 Comments

Our last night in Argentat seemed to become a bit of a farce; firstly we got swept into last night silliness and our one beer in the sun became two, so by the time we realised there was virtually no choice for a meal out the supermarkets had also closed!  We are no strangers to wandering around French towns searching in vain for somewhere to eat, but so far on this trip we had been lucky.  How come a town in the middle of nowhere with under 900 inhabitants (Meyrueis)…

Mini Cooper Road Trip Day 7, to Argentat

Posted on May 2, 2012 at 22:13 5 Comments

I can thoroughly recommend Meyrueis in the Cevennes national park, especially if like me you had never heard of it before.  It is a fantastic location with so much to see and do we will definitely be returning here again, and probably to stay a few days.  Last night we stumbled upon a gem of a restaurant serving great local food, where three courses and wine cost us less than 35€.  In the summer we could have sat on their terrace above the river that the trout I ate…

Hi Jacqueline
I currently use a brand new PC laptop but I think everyone doing anything to do with imaging uses macs.
I might just take alook on Le Bon Coin.
What spec should I be looking for?

Hi Jacqueline
Somewhat delayed reply because my son in Norfolk said he would sort it as he is in IT and already has a website, but he takes his time! Recently he told me he had done it - have you noticed anything? He calls the house Deux Puits and its in Lugny Champagne (18)

Hi Jacqueline
I have just joined the group and noticed in the newsletter that you were offering ads for gites. I am not clear as to how I find the right piece for it but am interested in offering the ground floor studio apartment with above ground pool that we have here in Cher for rent near Sancerre and Pouilly wine districts). It is newlky renovated and also fully suitable for wheelchair users. Could you please tell me what I need to do? Thanks Sue
