We are hoping to move to France in the next year or so and having seen some very informative posts on here, I thought I would join!
We think we have settled on a general area - Gers - due to the climate, since we have visited (and mostly stayed) everywhere from Nantes to Saumur, and Perpignan to Bordeaux at various times of the year.
So using the excuse (as a new member) of being completely 'green' in this type of thing, can I pose a few questions that some of you may like to throw into the pot some comments/advice/warnings?
Am I right in thinking that in general Gers has a predominance for light winds (as opposed to 40kph+) and a warm summer, a touch of frost occasionally with some snow in December and January?
We are learning French - slowly albeit - but I have read posts that have scared me witless...we want to become involved with the community, and know that it will be a long process - so can anyone give me some hints/tips on this hot topic?
And anything else anyone wants to throw in just for fun?
