france: How to make sure that the Carpets are included in the sale… - 06/06/13 09:08 AM
How to make sure that the Carpets are included in the sale… There is no clear definition of ‘fixtures’ and ‘fittings’ in French property law, and the issue can sometimes be a sensitive one between buyer and seller.
It is surprising how frequently the final decision on the sale of a property worth possibly several hundred thousand euros can come down to whether or not the cooker or carpets are included in the price.

However, a more serious problem, particularly for the buyer, is the extent to which the seller and buyer leave unstated just what is to be included … (0 comments)

Leaf Prints from Rusty Nails    

 
 
 
Leaf Prints from Rusty Nails – new creativity from Normandy, France.
 
These leaf prints are really detailed and fairly easy to do, but you do have to wait a week for the rusty nails to react with the vinegar.
 
I actually read about this in a childrens magazine in a waiting room with my son and it must have been three or four weeks between reading and trying.  So I was really pleased when it worked so well as it meant not only my French stood the test but … (4 comments)

france: Managing visits from friends and family - 05/21/13 07:55 AM
Managing visits from friends and family - Especially when you have moved to France. Within mere minutes of settling into your new home in France you are likely to have friends and family getting in touch, asking when they can come and visit. Although seeing them is always fun, having them stay in your home can be another matter entirely. 

You may well find you are Mr & Mrs Popular once you either move overseas or buy a second home abroad. Having friends and family visit you can, and should, be great fun, but it does mean your routine will … (4 comments)

Finistère Living, Brittany, France Finistère Living With its mystic past, rich traditions and stunning landscapes.
France’s last defiant gesture towards the Atlantic, the department of Finistère, with its mysterious, gnarled dragon’s head coastline, has so much to offer that no two travellers go home with the same story. And many of them, enchanted by their discoveries, return year after year to explore in more depth. Some turn to its long history from Neolithic menhirs through every age to the bombardments of the Second World War; others to museums, châteaux and its religious heritage; and almost all are captivated by … (8 comments)

france: Hello from Normandy or Normandie and Hello from Brittany or Bretagne.. - 04/09/13 08:49 AM
Hello from Normandy or Normandie and Hello from Brittany or Bretagne.. I am confused now, help !!!
 
Being Dutch from origin and hence happy with my language skills (nothing snotty here :-) ) I find myself now in a terrible agonizing conflict of interests. The French language is beautiful - the language of Molière - sings through the phrases, and is one to preserve. France in its own right named its beautiful regions keeping history in tact.
So when I drive back home and see a sign "Bienvenue en Normandie" (Welcome in Normandie) it makes me proud. But … (3 comments)

france: Buying Property in the Limousin region, Creuse Department. - 04/04/13 10:24 AM
The department of Creuse in the Limousin region has the lowest average prices in the whole of France, so what is it like and what do you get for your money?
The department is located in the northern most area of the Limousin region.
It occupies a geographically central position in the country, being 350 km south of Paris, 350 km west of Lyon, and 315 km north-east of Bordeaux.
Crossed by the A20 north to south and the N145 east to west, that open to neighbouring regions, it sits between the serious industrialised north and relaxed southern world of the … (4 comments)

france: Arc-en-Ciel : There must be gold in the air in the Andelle Valley - 03/18/13 12:00 PM
While enjoying a fantastic lazy sunday we were once again treated with a superb Arc-en-Ciel, a rainbow, over the Andelle Valley, where I live. So you will probably think "so what", but I live in the Andelle Valley, near Rouen in Normandie, France.
The Andelle Valley starts in the overflow of the Andelle river into the river Seine (the Seine-embrace we call it - if you look at the map, you will understand) and goes all the way up to Lyons-la-Forêt, the hunting village of King Richard the Lionheart (here's something to Google...).
Romilly sur Andelle, the village where I … (2 comments)
