Re: Long Term Rentals

I was thinking, would it be realistic to live alternately between 2 places, renting the one I don't live in while I'm not there, be it for a couple days or for up to 6 months? The thing is that an inheritance would allow to buy a property in Paphos as well as one in our good old P-O, and my husband ...

Hello from Russia

Hello everyone! My name is Helen, I'm 36, work as an interpreter, and I've joined this forum because my husband Olivier may well inherit a house in the Pyrénées-Orientales in a couple months. It would be quite the uncommon way to end up there, since he's Belgian, I'm Scottish, and we met in Moscow...
